Wanstead House has a rich and colourful history, at one time being the most important house in the manor of Wanstead. Once owned by Queen Elizabeth’s favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester in the sixteenth century, it was rebuilt in the 1720s by Sir Richard Child who commissioned an enormous mansion in the fashionable Palladian style by Colen Campbell. In around 1805, the estate was inherited by a young woman called Catherine Tylney-Long, who at once became one of the richest ladies in England.
