Elton Hall Open Days

August 5 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00pm on Saturday, repeating until Thursday, August 31, 2017

Open Days at Elton Hall is nestled in the beautiful countryside on the Cambridgeshire/Northamptonshire border, lying eight miles southwest of Peterborough. It stands proud in unspoilt landscaped parkland where a house has stood since the 12th century.

The house has been the home of the Proby family since 1660, although previous generations held land at Elton from the time of Elizabeth I. Elton Hall is enchanting and there is something romantic and magical about the building with its gothic south elevation set at a right angle to the classical, French inspired, entrance wing. Successive generations have embellished both the house and collection, which contains many Old Masters and fine examples of English portraiture.   A visit, which also includes the recently restored gardens, provides the visitor with a fascinating insight into British history and taste.
