Middleton Hall Houses
Attractions include a lakeside walk, two walled gardens, a restored smithy, a courtyard craft centre, cafes, book room and souvenir shop. The Hall is licensed for civil weddings, hosts receptions, conferences and other social functions. Private visits with conducted tours are available by arrangement.
In the 17th Century the Hall was the home of Francis Willughby, founder member of the Royal Society, whose interest in natural history was inspired and encouraged by John Ray, one of Britain's greatest naturalists. After Willughby's death, Ray continued to live at the Hall. Sir Hugh Willoughby, the Tudor explorer, and Cassandra First Duchess of Chandos were born here. The house also has links with Elizabeth I, Lady Jane Grey and Jane Austen.
