Hampton Court, Castle Gardens & Parkland image

C15th Castle surrounded by 1000 acres of stunning parkland, pasture and woodlands with the river Lugg running alongside predates Hampton Court Palace by some 80 years. The land was granted by King Henry IV to Sir Rowland Lenthall at the time of his marriage to Margaret Fitzalan, daughter of the Earl of Arundel, a cousin of the King. Lenthall built the original quadrangular manor house in 1427, 12 years after his Knighthood at the battle of Agincourt (1415). In 1434 he was granted licence to crenellate the house by King Henry VI.

Take a Castle tour and see the medieval Coningsby Great Hall, original Chapel, stunning Ballroom, library and a selection of the sumptuous bedrooms.

Wander through the award winning gardens or take a stroll alongside the river.

Enjoy a meal or light snack in the Joseph Paxton designed Orangery Restaurant.

Children will have a fabulous day getting lost in the maze, discovering the secret tunnel, getting wet behind the waterfall or climbing around our children’s play area.

The Castle can be hired for weddings, private functions and corporate events.
