A historic home and famous film location.
Upon arrival at this magnificent venue, guests would be forgiven for thinking they’ve stepped into a big screen comic book adaptation. They’d be right too, because Wollaton Hall was used extensively for the 'Wayne Manor' scenes in the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises".
Originally designed by Robert Smythson and completed in 1588, its flamboyant English Renaissance style is considered a masterpiece.
Inside, take advantage of the acoustics in the magnificent formal Elizabethan Great Hall for your meetings, seminars or dinner event. More intimate drinks receptions are perfectly suited to the elegant Willoughby Room. On a tour of the house you can soak up the sights and smells of a functioning Tudor kitchen, furnished according to the Hall’s 1601 inventory including the original ovens restored to working order.
The Hall is also home to Nottingham’s Natural History Museum with thousands of zoology, geology and botany specimens to inspect. Surrounded by wooded parkland and immaculate formal gardens there’s also plenty of space to unwind.
