Visit Website


Harvington Hall is a beautiful moated manor house with the largest surviving series of priest hides in the country and a rare collection of original Elizabethan wall paintings.

Originally built in the 1300s and developed magnificently in the late 1500s, Harvington Hall brings to life the fascinating history of the survival of Roman Catholic families and clergymen during the Reformation of the late sixteenth century.

Visitors will discover the Hall’s many ingenious secret priest hides, many of which were designed by Saint Nicholas Owen, and marvel at the outstanding and rare wall paintings of the late 1500s.

The Malt House Visitor Centre offers a series of family activities and historic games, as well as an introductory film about the Hall and an insight into the processes of malting and brewing.

The Moatside Tearoom offers superb homemade cakes and scones and light lunches, all in an atmospheric historic setting. The Hall’s gift shop offers a selection of Fairtrade and unusual gifts and homeware.

Throughout the year, there are special events such as living history, outdoor plays and concerts – please see the Hall’s website on 01562 777846.
