We had read of Haddon Hall but were amazed to find this well kept building still as it was in Elizabethan times. It is an extensive building with an enclosed garden that has managed to survived through England's turbulent past. There were volunteers on hand...More

Spectacular building. Unique in its relatively unspoiled medieval architecture. Do your research before the visit though as no attempt has been made to provide information on site. Nothing is described or explained. Such a shame.

A fascinating, relatively quiet piece of English history. It's not been spoiled by its own fame and offers a chance to step back in time. The house is a delightful, rambling mansion, full of history and ancient art and furniture relics. The precipitous formal gardens...More

The gardens of this property were the highlight of this visit. The house was quite interesting but very old and difficult to get around for the elderly and disabled. I think the entry charge is overpriced and you had to pay an additional charge of...More
