Gorhambury House, St Albans, Hertfordshire - Impressive Palladian house built in the years 1777-84 with monumental portico designed by Sir Robert Taylor & commissioned by James Bucknall Grimston, 3rd Viscount Grimston. It replaced Old Gorhambury House, which was left to fall into ruin on the property. It remains the home of the Earl of Verulam.
