The National Museum of Costume showcases period clothes in authentic settings, complete with furniture and decorative art, narrating social events from the 1850s. With such a fairy-tale setting the house lends itself perfectly to weddings, drinks receptions, dinners or location filming. Elegant dinners and wonderful wedding ceremonies and receptions can take place in a marquee in the grounds of Shambellie House, and the house itself can be open after hours for guests to view the exhibits.
