Moor Park Mansion is a Grade I listed Palladian mansion set within over 300 hundred acres in Hertfordshire.

The name Moor Park originates from the old park of the Manor of More, which is where the mansion and golf courses now sit.

The original house was built in 1678 for James, Duke of Monmouth.  In 1732, Benjamin Hoskins Styles, who had made a fortune in The South Sea Company, purchased it and the current appearance of the mansion, including the magnificent paintings within the Main Hall, Thornhill Room and Grand Staircase can be traced to his time at the mansion.
