King James Room

This is the first in a series of rooms which make up the Tudor east range.
The King James Drawing Room

Once the small dining room, it is named after the full length portraits of King James I and his queen, Anne of Denmark, who visited Grimsthorpe in 1611. In 1769, the writer Arthur Young described it as ‘a tea room richly ornamented with fluted pilasters of the Corinthian order, finely carved and gilt’.
