Explore over 400 years of unbroken family history resulting in a fascinating collection of furniture, weaponry, paintings, ceramics, textiles, household objects, porcelain and a wealth of amusing stories all to be found in and around Doddington Hall. 

A visit to Doddington offers a unique insight into family life through the ages and the challenges of looking after such an estate in the 21st century.

For many, the Gardens at Doddington are just as spectacular as the Hall itself. Remaining faithful to the original Elizabethan layout, mellow walls provide the framework for the formal East Front and West Gardens. Beyond the West Gardens begin the lovingly restored Wild Gardens.

Over the generations, most recently by Antony and Victoria Jarvis and Claire and James Birch, the gardens at Doddington have been restored, cared for, nurtured and developed to their fullest potential.

Please note that due to the historic nature of the Hall, there is no lift and access to the upper floors is via stairs only. To ensure all visitors experience the Hall, we have a virtual tour of the upper-floors available on the ground floor. Most of the gardens can be explored by wheelchair. Please be aware, this is mostly on grass and gravel paths which can be harder to navigate for a standard wheelchair.
