Elton Hall is reopening on May 30, for summer visitors

The historic house on the Cambridgeshire/Northamptonshire border opens annually for visitors during the summer, offering a glimpse into the many layers of a house that has been adapted through the centuries. 

Originally built as a medieval house and tower in 1475, when the Proby family bought the land they began to expand and alter the building as each generation took ownership.

The gardens boast a lily pond, flower garden, topiary garden and an orangery.

Elton Hall is reopening from 2pm to 5pm on bank holiday Sunday, May 30, and will also be open on bank holiday Monday. Throughout June and July it will be open on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, extending to Sundays and bank holiday Monday in August.

To ensure social distancing is maintained, tickets must be pre-booked and will give visitors a time to arrive.

Admissions to both the hall and garden cost £12.50, with garden tickets costing £9. Children under 16 accompanied by an adult will be admitted for free.
