The Cholmondeley Model Soldier Collection

Housing what is billed as the largest model soldier collection in the world, Houghton Hall is about an hour’s drive from where I live in Suffolk.
I am not a big fan of wandering around stately homes but for a cut price ticket you can skip the hall and just wander around the grounds and the ‘Soldier Museum’ (which is housed in the old stable block).
Is it worth it?
Most definitely in my opinion. Some of the dioramas are quite spectacular with background paintings by the late Ian Weekley giving a real sense of distance.
Wonderful post Simon with some lovely vignettes and figures on display.
