Sheffield - Visit to Haddon Hall
This event is in the past.
Join Cambridge Society of Sheffield for a trip to Haddon Hall on Wednesday, 19 July.
Haddon Hall is probably the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house in existence and has been described by Simon Jenkins as ‘The most perfect English house to survive from the Middle Ages’. The hall dates over the period from the 12th to the early 17th century whereupon it lay dormant for over 200 years until the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored it in the 1920s. Unlike many similar houses it has managed to avoid fire, warfare, family misfortune and changing fashions, thus providing a unique view of early English life and history.
Programme for the visit:
11.00 - 12.30: Guided tour of the hall
12.30- 13.30: Lunch in restaurant (optional, individual payment and choice of menu)
13.30 onwards: Self-guided tour of gardens
