Accessibility

Due to the age and nature of Haddon Hall, access for visitors with restricted mobility, including wheel chair users, is very challenging with many uneven floors and steps without handrails. This is true of both the buildings and the gardens. We wish to avoid visitors being disappointed to find that they cannot access the Hall, so if you are in any doubt please do read our more detailed Accessibility Statement or ring the Estate Office on 01629 812855 before you visit.

Home to Lord and Lady Edward Manners, Haddon Hall is one of the country’s most elegant stately homes.

Haddon invites visitors to immerse themselves in centuries of history, art and craftsmanship, and stroll around the Hall’s magnificent cascading gardens, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Peak District.

Experience the Hall’s grandeur, marvel at the rare 15th-century frescoes in the Chapel and savour the plethora of roses which shroud the limestone walls in a sonnet of pale pinks and whites.

Haddon Hall also holds a number of events and exhibitions throughout the year, together with regular walks in the ecologically rich parkland. With a restaurant and artisan pop-up shop within the grounds, the Hall is the perfect location for a full day out.

It is the choice location for many film-makers, playing host to three versions of “Jane Eyre”, became Prince Humperdinck’s Castle in cult movie the Princess Bride and was also used in “Elizabeth”, “Pride & Prejudice” and “The Other Boleyn Girl”.
