Haddon Hall

The Terraced Gardens lie to the south-east of the Hall and are accessed by a doorway from the Hall. Steps leads down to the Bowling Green Terrace which was replanted by Arne Maynard in 2011. Maynard also redesigned the Fountain Garden which can be accessed from the upper terrace by steps.

The terraced gardens were designed by the Elizabethan architect Robert Smythson at the same time as he designed the Long Gallery. A reference dated 1650 refers to a new door being built in the garden wall.

Don’t miss the 15th century frescoes in the Chapel.

Many films have been filmed at Haddon including Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and The Other Boleyn Girl.
