Throughout history the hall has been put to many uses – a family home, working men’s club and church hall. The most important period of its life is undoubtedly as the family seat of the Radclyffe family who resided here for over 300 of those years.
Today, it is a welcoming and friendly historic house telling the story of the Hall and some of the people who made it their home.
Explore our magnificent Great Hall and a range of recreated rooms, meet one of the historic residents of the hall, stroll around our manicured gardens, follow the trail around the hall, have a go at a craft activity, enjoy one of the fantastic events we host each year and experience over 820 years of history. Oh and don’t forget to look out for our two resident ghosts…
With free entry and a tempting café, it’s the perfect place for the whole family to take a step back in time for day out to remember.
