Nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside, and yet only a short drive from the motorway network, Lamport has a story worth hearing.

A Tudor founder, blind book collector, wayward 17th-century grand tourist, eccentric Victorian, Hollywood actor, commanding wives and dedicated daughters – Lamport is full of characters.

Home to the Isham family for over four centuries, the fortunes, interests and trials of each generation have left their mark.

Developed from a Tudor manor house, architecturally the hall has been worked on by John Webb, Smith of Warwick and William Burn.

Visit Lamport Hall and explore the fine rooms and discover a wealth of outstanding furniture, books, china and paintings along with tales of success, debt, firsts and adventure.
