The tour encompasses the oldest domestic building in Warwickshire, the Tudor Jettied Building and Great Hall, but can be tailored to suit your requirements and specific interests. Examples of buildings from each phase of the Hall’s history can still be seen, creating a rare living museum of architectural styles over 750 years. But it is not just a building. It is a place full of history. The Hall was the home of some notable people and was visited by many famous figures, including Queen Elizabeth I, who spent two nights under its roof in 1575. Middleton also has a very special place in the history of British natural science. It was here that the first ever book on ornithology and the scientific classification of birds, and subsequently British plants was complied, by Francis Willughby and John Ray. The beautiful grounds feature a lake, moat and noted walled garden and offer a range of lovely walks. The lake and the land around it have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the large number of breeding birds and rare plants that can be found there.
“Thank you for arranging the tour around Middleton Hall yesterday – our members certainly enjoyed it and many were surprised, and greatly impressed, by the work done by the volunteers to make the Hall as it is today. Several said they didn’t know the Hall was there, and would be returning to look at the buildings and exhibits in more detail. All of the volunteer tour guides showed such great enthusiasm for the history of the place, and what could happen in the future too!” – Sue
