Haddon Hall, the Derbyshire home of the Duke of Rutland, is renowned as the most impressive medieval manor house in England. It has remained virtually untouched since the reign of Henry VIII. It is situated on a limestone slope above the River Wye and has been a popular location for both film and TV productions. The most impressive attractions are the huge clock tower, the ancient kitchens, the banqueting hall and famous tapestries. The gardens, which are set in a series of attractive stone-walled terraces, are a lovely place to walk and relax and the hall also has a licensed restaurant in the 17th century stable block, which serves home made lunches and afternoon teas.
