In a project funded by the DTI Information Society initiative, Interactive Zone has produced a website to promote Boughton House, a little known tourist attraction which contains a remarkable art collection as well as being an architectural wonder.

The website allows viewers to conduct a virtual tour of the rooms of the property, to explore the family tree of the owner, the Duke of Buccleugh, to plan a real visit to the site, with links to travel, accommodation, and other tourist facilities.

Within the rooms visitors can view, and in some cases manipulate, pictures, tapestries, furniture and other objects they find there, or search the underlying database for specific artefacts.
