Paxton House and gardens
Paxton House is situated on the banks of the River Tweed, near Berwick-upon-Tweed. Designed by John and James Adam in 1758, it is perhaps the finest example of an eighteenth-century Palladian country house in Britain and contains a pre-eminent collection of Chippendale furniture. In 1811, the Edinburgh architect Robert Reid added the largest purpose-built picture gallery in a Scottish country house.

Today, this gallery focuses on British art from 1760 to 1840, taken from the National Galleries of Scotland’s collection and containing works by Raeburn, Wilkie and Lawrence, among others.
