Kirby Hall

The family holiday is almost over but we are breaking our journey home with a stop at Kirby Hall. This is another English Heritage property and was originally built in 1575 by Christopher Hatton.

Although Hatton built the house in the hope that Queen Elizabeth would visit. However despite being a favourite at court she never came to Kirby.

The house is now largely a romantic ruin but parts have been restored. The audio tour of the house and gardens is also very interesting and worth listening to if you visit.


  1. Used to watch reenactments etc there :)


  2. Last time I visited this place was about 13 years ago for the English heritage Festival of History.
