Gainsborough Old Hall

gainsborough old hall.jpg
Gainsborough Old Hall is among the best-preserved medieval manor houses in England. It’s a part brick and part timber-framed house, dating from the late 15th century with Elizabethan additions.
The kitchens have remained virtually unchanged since they were built and feature an enormous fireplace. See the Great Hall with its splendid arched wooden roof, and climb the imposing lodgings tower from where you can enjoy the magnificent vista of the manor lands and the river Trent into Nottingham.

Tread in the footsteps of royal visitors, including Richard III and Henry VIII who were guests of the Burgh family who originally built and lived in the building, and the Mayflower Pilgrims and John Wesley, who worshipped here.
