FIRLE PLACE

Firle Place is a country estate and wedding venue set in the South Downs National Park. It has been the home of the Gage family since the 15th century, when the current building was begun, but covered in Caen stone and refurbished in the style of a French chateau in the 18th century. It has a good collection of old master paintings, including works by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Van Dyck, Raphael, as well as porcelain and furniture.
The house and parts of the gardens are open to the public and special events and exhibitions are held in the house and grounds.

Firle Place has been used as a film and television location, including heaturing in a 2020 adaptation of Jane Austen’s 'Emma'.
