About Us

The gardens have re-opened to visitors on Sundays and Mondays.  Tickets are available from the Visitor Information webpage. They hope to be able to re-open the Hall to visitors this Spring/Summer.

Dating from 1719, the majestic Capesthorne Hall with its stunning Jacobean style architecture is set in 100 acres of picturesque parkland, with exquisite gardens and chain of three serene lakes.

The gardens feature colourful herbaceous borders filled with a rich array of perennials. They are notable for the late summer fragrance of rosa gallica, rosa rugosa and old moss roses. Visitors can also enjoy the rhododendron woods and walks leading to an arboretum.

Capesthorne Hall is the much-loved home of the Bromley-Davenports whose ancestors have owned the land since Domesday times. The Hall contains a great variety of treasures, fine paintings, furniture, marble, Greek vases and family muniments dating from 1153.

Head to the Butler's Pantry, a spectacular lakeside setting offering delicious home-made light refreshments including soup, sandwiches, salads, cakes, creams teas, sweets and ice creams.

The Hall and Grounds are open to visitors between April and October each year, Sundays, Mondays and bank Holidays. The Gardens and Chapel are open from 12 noon until 5pm. The Butler’s Pantry is open for refreshments from 12 noon until 4.30pm. The Hall is open from 1.30pm until 4.00pm (last admission at 3.30pm).
