Aynhoe Park

How had I never heard of Aynhoe Park?! The eccentric English estate is known for its extensive taxidermy collection and is a popular venue for weddings and other festivities. Can you imagine wandering throughout its halls? I must visit!

    I, for one, am appalled by the horrendous (and creepy) lack of respect for these majestic wild animals shown in a milieu way beneath their dignity.

    I could do without the stuffed beasts, prefer them living.
    But the house and grounds are gorgeous!
    Oh to be rich and eccentric ….

    I’m all for “make believe” taxidermy, but the real stuff sickens me. I’m not anti-sportsman, either. I think it is something that had appeal to people at an earlier time, but no longer. I was in a client’s house, an elderly woman, and she had stautues of a bird of prey and an owl. I could not wait to leave.
