Lamport Hall

Lamport Hall

Lamport Hall

A Tudor founder, blind book collector, wayward 17th century grand tourist, eccentric Victorian, Hollywood actor, commanding wives and dedicated daughters. As the home for the Isham family for over four centuries the history of Lamport Hall is full of characters. Since 1974 the Lamport Preservation Trust has ensured its survival as a centre of culture and education. This Grade I listed house contains an internationally important library, outstanding furniture, and many objects bought during the third Baronet’s Grand Tour. Ten acres of tranquil gardens and parklands provide a beautiful setting for this hidden gem, which is also the home of the world’s oldest garden gnome. The gardens are open from March and the Hall open from April until the end of October, with events throughout the year to suit many interests.
