The Willis Organ
In the Long Library stands a magnificent organ by ‘Father’ Willis, built in 1891 to the order of the 8th Duke. This organ is the largest organ in private ownership in Europe, with four manuals and pedals, 2300 pipes and 53 speaking stops. Visitors can enjoy demonstrations on the organ most Fridays from 12.00-13.00 and recitals on Sundays by a range of guest organists from 13.30-14.30.
Along with many of the treasures inside the Palace, the Willis organ requires constant restoration and up-keep. An appeal has been launched allowing you to help restore this wonderful organ to its full glory by sponsoring one of the many pipes. Sponsorship starts at just £25.
