This impressive room was designed in the style of a medieval baronial great hall, and was plainly intended to be the heart of the Castle. A clearer impression of this is provided by a watercolour of 1820 - you can look for this in the rooms notes. The Great Hall is furnished today in the style of a vast Edwardian drawing room, with ottoman, sofas, armchairs and portraits.
Ancient tales of chivalry and romance appealed strongly to the Victorians as they seemed to offer a nostalgic return to fixed codes and values, in contrast to the changing times of the latter half of the 19th century. This may be one reason why the 3rd Earl, who was very susceptible to what he called armouritis, bought half of the famous Meyrick Collection of medieval armour from Goodrich Court in the 1870's.
