    Inside the hall there is a lovely gift shop selling the usual kind of souvenirs, but also books, candles, pottery and at Christmas time there are Christmas Cards and christmas decorations.

    Even though the shop is situated in the hall there is no entrance fee to the shop.

    There are a couple of lakes in the park as well as the river, and I love to take bread and feed the ducks and the swans.

    We also used to go here when our son was younger collecting conkers :-)

    Favorite thing: The hall is also used by schools for history lessons.

    Concerts and recitcals are held at the hall and outside in the summer months there are Shakespearian plays held.

    At one time in the UK you could only marry in either a church or registry office, but now things have changed, laws relaxed and many different types of venues are used for marriage.

    You can hire the hall for your marriage ceremony.

    This photo shows the rear of the hall and as you can see the christmas tree is there.
