Hill Hall
Hill Hall
A magnificent Elizabethan mansion, showcasing some of the earliest examples of Renaissance style in England. A particular feature are two excellent sets of wall paintings, with a mix of classical and Biblical subject matter. The paintings have been called the best Elizabethan figure paintings in England.
The house was built between 1569-75 to replace a 12th century house on the same site. The building is surrounded by 50 hectares of parkland designed by Humphrey Repton. Hill Hall is divided into private flats, but parts are open to visitors for regular guided tours. The house was badly damaged by fire in 1969 but has since been restored.
