The James 1st Room, named after the King’s Royal visit to Chillingham in 1603, was built specially for the future King. It is famous for its Elizabethan ceiling with the gilded ribbing and very finely moulded pendants.
This room is brilliantly furnished with Sir Humphry’s extraordinary copies of antique originals and lined with patterned silk, originally made for Chatsworth House.  The paintings and tapestries are not important but relate to the Wakefield family and so of interest to the room.
