The Marble Corridor linked the Household Wing with the family Pavilion. Prince Albert and Ludwig Gruner carefully planned the decoration, which included Minton tiles on the floor. The Corridor was used as a showcase for important pieces of sculpture, among them the Marine Venus, purchased by the Prince in 1848, which stands in an elaborate shell-headed niche.
