Details

Wander through the Hall and gardens or arrange a guided tour for a fascinating insight into the history of this beautiful house. Haddon Hall has welcomed visitors for hundreds of years and its beauty and atmosphere never fails to enchant. Described as "the most romantic house to survive from the middle ages" and set in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, parts of the house date from the 12th Century, sitting like a jewel in its Elizabethan terraced
gardens, and overlooking the River Wye.

Free parking for coaches is available in the main Car Park. (Car parking £3.00 per car) The entrance to the grounds is on the other side of the A6 and the distance to the Hall itself is about 400 yards. Please take great care crossing this busy road. A minibus is available on request (for the less able) to take your party on this short journey.
The main entrance is approached via gentle steps with a handrail. Once inside the Hall there are a number of steps and uneven floors. As a group organiser, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have read and understood our Access Statement and passed the information on to members of your group. We cannot be held responsible for members of your group that are unable to navigate the hall and gardens as a result of not being informed. Wheelchair users will find the site impossible, but those wishing to visit are more than welcome.

    Notes

    • Haddon Hall is a Grade 1* listed building. It is built on a hillside above the valley of the River Wye. Because of the nature of the site, there are many different levels within the house itself. Access for visitors with disabilities and especially those using wheelchairs is very restricted. The ground floor is mainly flag stones, which have a worn uneven surface. Care and attention must be paid especially in doorways. Due to the changing levels in the Hall there are small steps between rooms.
