Haddon Hall, One Of Derbyshire's Most Loved Stately Homes Will Reopen To The Public For The 2024 Season On March 20.

Haddon Hall to reopen for the 2024 season

Haddon Hall, one of Derbyshire’s most loved stately homes will reopen to the public for the 2024 season on March 20.

The Peak District Hall closes in January and February each year during the quieter months of the tourist season.

Nine Centuries

Steeped in history, Haddon Hall boasts a remarkable lineage stretching back over nine centuries. Originally built as a Norman fort in the 12th century, it transitioned into the hands of the Vernon family in 1170. Through marriage, ownership passed to the Manners family in the 16th century. Remarkably, Haddon Hall remains in their possession to this day.  Currently, Lord and Lady Edward Manners reside in the Hall. They offer visitors a chance to explore this architectural gem and witness a living testament to England’s rich heritage.

In 2024 the Hall will be offering an exciting programme of events to enjoy both inside the Hall and the Medieval Park which reopens in April.

Spotlight Tours

Spotlight tours will take place every hour from Tuesday to Sunday, where tour guides will share their favourite insights into life at the hall over the last 900 years. Haddon Hall’s Medieval Park has a packed calendar from April including its popular parkland and specialist walks, alongside photography workshops and bat-watching evenings.

For the local community of Derbyshire residents, Haddon Hall will once again offer a 30% discount on standard adult admission, and if you are local, you may like to consider its new Derbyshire Resident Summer Visitor Pass which offers repeat visits to the Hall throughout the season until 30th September. Bring proof of residence and enquire at the Ticket Office when you arrive. All children aged under 16 years continue to be admitted free to Haddon Hall.
