About Hanbury Hall
Hanbury Hall is an impressive brick-built, stone-dressed house from around 1700, in the style of Christopher Wren and probably modelled on nearby Ragley Hall. For over three hundred years the house was the seat of the Vernon family, it sits in over 400 acres of magnificent gardens and parkland.
Within the house there is much to capture the eye, most notable is the staircase and long room, both are painted by Sir James Thornhill who also painted some of the other ceilings in the house. It was Thornhill who was responsible for the famous painted room at Greenwich.
Hanbury has fine 18th century furniture, a superb collection of English porcelain, beautiful rugs, a collection of Dutch flower paintings and many other artefacts. The house was emptied of its contents prior to acquisition by the National Trust, but every effort has been made to dress the house in its former style. Other rooms to be seen in the house include lavishly furnished bed chambers.
One of the nicest times to visit Hanbury Hall is springtime when the woods in the grounds are covered with bluebells. The gardens are carefully tended and arranged to show vibrant spring, summer and autumn colour.
Visitors are welcome to try their hand at Bowls on the restored 18th century Bowling Green, there is the added attraction of a children's adventure playground, and peaceful walks in the tranquil grounds where on fine days you may enjoy a picnic. There is also an orangery of around 1740 and an ancient ice house.
The National Trust have installed a cafe and a shop for souvenirs. Parts of Hanbury Hall are let out by the National Trust as holiday apartments, but this does not detract from the main core of the house, or grounds, which are open from March to October.
