Middleton Hall

UK»England»Warwickshire»Middleton Hall

There is much to appreciate at and about Middleton Hall. It was never a palace but it shows evidence of several phases of English domestic architecture from the late thirteenth to the early nineteenth century. The Hall has been the home of some notable people and was visited by many figures from history. Included among these is Queen Elizabeth I, who certainly spent two nights under its roof after the festivities at Kenilworth in 1575. More importantly it has a special place in the history of British science. It was here that the first ever scientific book on ornithology was written and the first substantial catalogue of British plants compiled. The grounds, feature an SSSI including a nine acre lake , and a noted Walled Garden,
