Experience the medieval romance of Haddon Hall
Grab a loved one and visit one of the oldest and most romantic Tudor houses in Britain.
Hailed as one of the best-surviving medieval manor houses in England, Haddon Hall stands as one of this country’s oldest relics from Tudor times.
In fact, parts of the house have stood in this spot overlooking the River Wye since the 1100s; it’s something that shows in the steep steps you shuffle up to reach the Hall itself, which have been gradually worn away by centuries of footfall.
The atmospheric chapel and rooms are warmed by log fires during the winter, and will transport you back to a time when previous residents, such as John Manners the 9th Duke of Rutland, eloped there with his lover hundreds of years earlier. It’s pure romance.
