Horsley Towers was built in 1820 by William Currie. The main house of the estate, which dated from 1558, used to stand where Horsley Court (the old stables) now stands. William had them moved to higher ground because of his health. The house was built by Charles Barry, who also designed the Houses of Parliament in London. It is designed to resemble a Baravian castle, complete with turrets.
Today the venue is a luxury hotel and popular wedding venue. Inside the building is an ornate chapel built by the Earl Lovelace around 1856 along with the cloisters in memory of his first wife, Augusta Ada Byron, who died in 1852.
The house and chapel are not open to the general public is a this is now a hotel.
