The Mark Catesby hotel room was named after the notable botanist who was born at Castle Hedingham and lived in the nearby market town of Sudbury. He was most famous for his illustrations of animals and plants that inhabited the eastern seaboard of North America, painting everything that inspired him from Virginia to the south coast of Florida. This collection of work was commissioned by King George III and is now on view in the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace. The rich and luxurious colours and fabrics used in the room were inspired by Catesby and his passion for flora and fauna.
