About

13 July - 3 November 2019
Newstead Abbey 
Usual admission prices to Newstead Abbey apply. Free entry for under-16s accompanied by a paying adult during the school summer holidays.


An iconic portrait of Lord Byron will be coming to his home at Newstead Abbey for an exhibition this summer, as part of a major National Portrait Gallery project.

The renowned painting of Byron by Thomas Phillips will be on display at his ancestral home at Newstead from 13 July until 3 November.

The portrait shows Byron at the age of 25, dressed in a traditional Albanian costume he had bought in 1809 while on his grand tour of Europe. It has since become one of the most famous and enduring images of the poet at the height of his fame and notoriety.

COMING HOME is a major project which sees the National Portrait Gallery lend 50 portraits of iconic individuals to places across the UK with which they are most closely associated. These artworks will be available for audiences to see in local museums, galleries and other venues, along with special programming available for families and communities.

Newstead Abbey will be open to the public every day throughout the school summer holidays, with free entry for all under-16s accompanied by a paying adult.
