Harlington is a medium-sized, village centre manor house, with 14th-century hall house origins.
There are 16th, 19th and 20th-century additions including an Elizabethan Great Chamber, fine 17th-century panelled Great and Little Parlours and a panelled state bedroom in which Charles II is reputed to have slept. There is also an interesting extension dating to 1937 by Sir Albert Richardson PRA.
The house was used for the interrogation (by Sir Francis Wingate, the then owner) and brief imprisonment of John Bunyan in 1660.
It houses an interesting collection of art, antiques and ephemera, including works by Landseer, Peter de Wint, James Northcote RA, John Afflick, Emma Vidal and Wolf von Lenkiewicz.
