Kirby Hall image

Kirby Hall is one of England’s greatest Elizabethan and 17th century houses earlier owned by Sir Christopher Hatton, Lord Chancellor to Queen Elizabeth I.

Although this vast mansion is partly roofless, the walls show the exceptionally rich decoration that proclaims that its successive owners were always in the forefront of new ideas about architecture and design.

The Great Hall and state rooms remain intact, refitted and redecorated to authentic 17th and 18th century specifications. Take time to wander around the recently restored great gardens with their elaborate ‘cutwork’ design complete with statues and urns. (- English Heritage)
