Haddon Hall Print


Haddon Hall has been welcoming guests for hundreds of years, always enchanting visitors with its beauty and atmosphere.

Home to Lord and Lady Edward Manners, Haddon Hall is one of England's most elegant and timeless stately homes, and a magnificent example of a fortified manor house. Enjoying fine Tudor and Elizabethan architecture, visitors to the Hall can experience the grandeur on display, marvel at the rare 15th Century frescoes in the Chapel, be enthralled by the surviving tapestries adorning the walls and savour the plethora of roses which blanket the limestone walls in a sonnet of pale pinks and whites.

From the exquisite Long Gallery, to the magnificent Great Hall and the medieval Chapel, with its beautifully carved alabaster retablo, Haddon Hall has been the choice of many film directors, with three productions of Jane Eyre, The Princess Bride and BBC's Gunpowder filmed on site, to name but a few.

Haddon Hall is also licensed to hold civil ceremonies in two of its most magnificent rooms, The Tudor panelled Parlour and the Elizabethan Long Gallery, as well as within the walled gardens in the Garden Pavilion.
Visitors and tour groups can immerse themselves in centuries of history, art and craftsmanship, and stroll around the Hall's magnificent cascading gardens, designed by award-winning garden designer Arne Maynard.

Each year, Haddon Hall boasts a list of events to entertain all ages, some returning year-on-year because of great popularity, some special events only occurring once.
Guided walks can be enjoyed on various dates over the year and at various intervals throughout the day, for free.

The Hall also has a restaurant, selling hot drinks, sandwiches and sweet treats.
