The Salomons Estate is a testament to the enterprising spirit of the Victorian era. It celebrates the vision of two men – Sir David Salomons MP, the first Jewish Lord Mayor of London, who courageously campaigned for the political rights of religious minorities and his nephew, Sir David Lionel Salomons, a technician, craftsman and inventor.
Sir David Lionel Salomons' passion for photography, lighting and mechanical devices is evident throughout the house. He was the first person in the country to introduce electricity to his home and he also added a private theatre equipped with one of the finest electrically driven philharmonic organs (now the only one left in the world).
The former country house has been converted into a series of flexible function rooms, which meet every need without losing any of the elegance of their bygone years.
