Grade I-listed Marlow Place was built in 1720 for John Wallop, 1st Earl of Portsmouth. Host to the highest of society (including George II) the building was designed with pediments, pilasters, a ballroom... and a secret underground tunnel to the pub – for Wallop to smuggle ladies of the night. At the end of the 18th century, the house was acquired by the Royal Military Academy. In the 1950s it was a girls' finishing school (old Wallop would surely have approved).
