There is plenty to enjoy at Kelham Hall this spring and summer
Once the home of the Manners-Sutton family, the distinctive hall was designed by the acclaimed architect Sir George Gilbert Scott and its interior is just as impressive; grand corridors give way to rooms decorated with intricate paintings, oak panels and carved stone work. For much of the 20th century it was a theological college for an Anglican Order of Monks and visitors can find out about its rich heritage during one of the hall tours which take place every Sunday.
Today, Kelham Hall is a well-loved visitor attraction which is ideal for families, couples and groups of friends who want to spend a relaxing day together. There is a carvery lunch to enjoy every Sunday as well as the opportunity to indulge in a traditional afternoon tea before taking a relaxing stroll in the picturesque grounds where you will find woodland trails, tennis courts and fishing pegs which run along the River Trent.
As well as the permanent attractions, visitors can also look forward to a packed programme of events this spring and summer including the first ever Kelham Festival and the Miss England semi-finals. Kelham Hall prides itself on being a family-friendly destination – and there are plenty of activities for youngsters to enjoy including fun days and an Easter egg hunt.
Jonathan Pass, who is the managing director of Kelham Hall, says: “Kelham Hall & Country Park is proud of its family-first ethos and we believe that by offering free admission and parking this shows that we are keen to engage with and welcome our visitors, in particular families from local communities.
“We have a number of family-friendly facilities and leisure activities with disabled access and are investing heavily in our special events programme so that people feel they can come along at any time and always have something to enjoy. For us, making a stately home experience accessible, welcoming and memorable is paramount.”
