The construction of Lancaster House was commenced in 1825 for the Duke of York, the second son of King George III. This building has some of the best state rooms in the UK. Queen Victoria is said to have remarked on arriving at Lancaster House, ‘I have come from my house to your palace’.
Hare & Humphreys have been working at Lancaster House for decades. We have redecorated and gilded many of the opulent state rooms including the Grand Hall and Staircase, the Long Gallery, the State Drawing Room and the Gold Room. Each of these rooms has detailed wall panels with carvings in high relief, and ornate cornice and ceilings. Over the years these rooms also need maintenance which we undertake under the supervision of Interserve and Heritage Surveys.
