Guided Hall Tour & Cream Tea

Friday 13th July

Step back in time by joining one of our informative Hall Guides for a fascinating tour of Holker Hall.   Dating back to the early 1600s, Holker Hall has been home to the Preston, Lowther and Cavendish families.  The Estate has passed by inheritance through the family line with each generation leaving its impressions by either altering the landscape or by changing the house by adding, refacing, embellishing or even rebuilding, as happened to the New Wing after the disastrous fire of March 1871.  The finished New Wing is a wonderful example of the magnificent neo-Elizabethan Gothic Style, yet at the same time is a very personal creation with all the space and charm of a Victorian stately home.  

Tour starts at 2pm followed by a Cream Tea in The Ilex. 

£15 per person. Pre-booking essential on 015395 58328.
