Gainsborough Old Hall
Visit Gainsborough Old Hall and step back into the past. This magnificent medieval manor is one of the best in the country and is an evocative reminder of days gone by.
Tread in the footsteps of some of its illustrious royal visitors. Both Richard III and Henry VIII were guests of the Burgh family, who originally built and lived in the building. The Mayflower Pilgrims and John Wesley also worshipped within its walls.
The Great Hall with its splendid, arched, wooden roof remains at the centre of the building and continues to inspire visitors. The kitchens remain virtually unchanged since they were built and those who climb to the top of the brick built tower can enjoy the magnificent vista of both the manor lands and the river Trent into Nottingham.
