Polesden Lacey
Polesden Lacey was the home of Margaret Greville, the illegitimate daughter of Edinburgh brewing magnate William McEwan, who used it as a weekend retreat where she entertained the royalty of Britain and Europe between the Wars. The home also functions as a museum of early 20th century life, with a tour of the "below stairs" servants' quarters. Greville intended to leave it to the then Duke and Duchess of York, but when they unexpectedly became king and queen, she decided to leave it to the National Trust instead.
