Tours & Group Visits
Known as the ‘hidden gem’ of North Warwickshire, a group day out to Middleton Hall & Gardens offers a unique experience. Whether your interests lie in history, gardening, architecture, flora and fauna, shopping, promenading or relaxing; Middleton Hall has something to interest everyone.
Tours of the Hall and gardens offer visitors an exclusive experience of our heritage. If you opt for a Hall tour, our expert volunteer tour guides will lead you on a journey through our fascinating history which encompasses 900 years of exploration, discoveries and quirky characters. The oldest building on site dates back to 1285 and is believed to be the oldest domestic building in North Warwickshire.
Our garden tours take you on a walk through the Georgian Walled Garden, heritage orchard, lakeside walk and herb garden. You will uncover the history behind these beautiful locations as well as hearing about the planting schemes and wildlife from our Gardener.
Our Guided Tour package is £12.50 per person and includes: hot drinks on arrival, a short welcome talk, either a Hall tour or a Garden tour plus admission to the estate for the whole day.
We welcome organised groups who simply wish to visit the estate and explore at their own leisure, without a tour. If your group is larger than 15 people, please just let us know in advance that you are coming. Our Gift Aid Adult Admission rate is £7.70 (£7 standard rate).

“We had a lovely day at Middleton Hall last Wednesday. We were welcomed by Victoria, had our tea and coffee and a fun and informative introductory talk from Joanna. Paul and Paula then took us on our Garden Tour, they obviously love the garden and their enthusiasm made the tour a delight. The garden was beautiful and the history brought to life by our guides.” Lynda, Gnosall Phoenix Club, visited June 2019.
“Just a brief note to say many thanks to you and your staff. Everyone from Olton U3A enjoyed our day and although the weather was not the best it did not spoil our day at all. We met Richard in the garden during the morning and his enthusiasm was superb and many of our group said they would like to come back in future for a guided tour of the gardens. The man in the Peel Museum was also very interesting and it was a pity we were running a bit low on time (and energy) when we reached him later in the afternoon.” Rob, Olton U3A, visited June 2019.
“We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit yesterday – the lovely weather did help. Thank you to you and to all your enthusiastic volunteers. You obviously have an excellent group – the guides, catering and the (unseen) gardeners worked hard for us. I know that some of us will be making a return visit.” Janet, Friends of Nottingham Museums, visited May 2019.
“Thank you very much for organising our visit yesterday – everything was very efficient and as planned. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their visit. Can you please also pass on our thanks to Debbie, Paul, Paula and Richard. Their enthusiasm and knowledge was appreciated by everyone and really helped to make our visit so interesting! We also all equally enjoyed our visit to the Hall and Peel Museum in the afternoon. All in all an excellent day! We will come again and recommend it to our friends!” Roger, Barston U3A, visited April 2019.
“I am writing to thank you very much for making the arrangements with our Secretary, in preparation for our visit, for your helpfulness in answering our questions and for ensuring that all went as arranged on the day itself. I found it a most interesting visit and have received positive comments. Our thanks to you for your welcome and introductory talk and to our guides and to all your volunteers who were there to look after us.” – Sheila, visited with a group of 28 in August 2018.
I write to thank you all most sincerely for your attention to the members of our group today. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Middleton Hall, and were all most impressed by the kind welcome we received when we arrived, the initial refreshments we enjoyed, and the talk and tour guides who all performed an excellent task. The whole story of Middleton Hall, from ruin to resurrection is a remarkable history, which we found quite mind-blowing. The knowledge of the three guides was fantastic and the details of the tours most enlightening. And of course we enjoyed the lunch prepared for us, so please thank that catering team also. All good wishes for the continuation of the work you are undertaking; we do hope that the barn can eventually be restored.” – Alan, visited with a group of 36 people in September 2018.
