About Broughton House and Garden

Your clients will love this impressive museum - Combining both original interiors and exhibition spaces, it is dedicated to E A Hornel’s life and work as an artist, collector and antiquarian.

Hornel bought the building in 1901, transforming it into his salesroom and home. He was a colourist with an eye for sensual detail – many of his works hang in the house alongside those of his contemporaries. He was also an avid collector: his vast library and archive includes one of the world’s largest collections of works by Robert Burns as well as rare documents on Galloway’s rich history. Your clients can admire his gallery with its ornate fireplace and Parthenon frieze.

Outside, Hornel and his sister designed a beautiful Japense-inspired garden with a gentle labyrinth of stepping stones, wisteria-covered paths and Edwardian charm.

Broughton House and Garden is suitable for both group and FIT clients.
