Group visits to Kirby Hall

Explore the beautiful grounds and rich decoration of one of England’s greatest Elizabethan and 17th century houses. Step back in time through our new interactive exhibition ‘Kirby Hall: Rise and Fall’ and discover its intriguing past, including once being owned by Sir Christopher Hatton, Lord Chancellor, and the visits of King James I when on royal progress. A must-see is the stunning hand-painted four-poster bed, inspired by a real bed listed on the Hall’s inventory. Wander through The Great Hall, restored to its historical colour palette, discover a selection of items from our Collection Stores on display for the first time and explore the magnificent gardens.
