Over 900 years old, Haddon Hall is one of the country’s most elegant, historically important, and timeless stately homes. Home to Lord and Lady Edward Manners and open to the public at various periods throughout the year, it is a magnificent example of a fortified manor house, enjoying fine Tudor and Elizabethan architecture, alongside beautiful Elizabethan walled gardens, which are renowned for their magnificent roses which cascade down the hall’s walls in the summer months.
As well as visiting the hall and gardens, Haddon has a wonderful calendar of events throughout the season. During the festive season, it hosts its renowned Mercatum Christmas Markets, which sees thousands of people visit the hall in the run-up to Christmas, with a line-up of over 200 talented artisans and makers displaying their wares in and around a beautifully decorated Haddon.
During October, Haddon is home to ‘The Little School of Sorcery’, where children can enjoy a plethora of ghastly games and activities throughout the hall, including potion making, wand decorating and scroll writing. Adults aren’t left out either, with the chance to go on Apotropaic Tours, in which they can discover the witch marks carved out in the hall centuries ago to ward off evil spirits.
That’s not all. Throughout the open season, Haddon has something for everyone, with music recitals, free guided tours for both children and adults, spotlight talks and delicious locally sourced food and drink at Haddon’s restaurant.
In addition to the hall and gardens is Haddon Medieval Park. This ancient parkland of national significance hosts a calendar of popular wildlife walks, workshops and tours, and this year visitors can enjoy an even greater choice of events and opportunities to explore the normally private parkland that surrounds Haddon Hall, including Photography Workshops and Bat Watching Evenings.
By road, Haddon Hall is situated on the A6 between Bakewell and Rowsley, 2 miles (3.2km) south of Bakewell. The hall has a dedicated car park on the A6.
If using a Sat Nav, DE45 1LA will take you to our car park. Alternatively, use directions for Bakewell or Rowsley, then follow the brown tourist signs for Haddon Hall. The car park is clearly signposted from both directions.
