B78 2AE


Middleton Hall, run by an independent charitable trust, is set in 42 acres in Staffordshire. Middleton has two entries in the Domesday book and the oldest building on site dates from 1285. Elizabeth I stayed at the Hall for a week in 1575 and it was home to the father of natural history, Francis Willughby and John Ray. More recent history tells the story of the Hall’s restoration by an intrepid group of volunteers who formed the Middleton Hall Trust. Open to the public as a Museum and Gardens, the Hall hosts public events and can be booked for Weddings and Private functions. A Site of Special Scientific Interest the grounds boast nature trails around the oldest man-made lake in Warwickshire, beautiful formal gardens often visited by Gertrude Jekyll and one of the earliest examples of a heated Walled Garden in the country. The Courtyard houses 12 retail outlets.
