‘Logically it should not still be standing up!’

It’s not your eyes playing tricks on you. Seeing the tumbling architecture of Little Moreton Hall for the first time, engineers in 1990 could not believe their eyes either. Fortunately, this timber-framed building, curled around with a scenic moat, has defied logic for over 500 years. Step back in time inside this higgledy-piggledy house and discover what everyday Tudor life tells us about the way we live today.

Once you've explored the house, take a look around the hall's manicured garden to find herbs and vegetables that the Tudors would have used for their cooking and medicines.

And don't forget to stop by the tea rooms for a delicious treat, or pop into the pre-loved bookshop for a browse. Every penny you spend at Little Moreton Hall will help us care for this special place.

      We visited as part of the heritage open day as we don’t hold NT membership at the moment. To say it was a disappointment was an understatement - the staff were too busy carrying on their personal... Read full review

      What a gem of a place. How it remains standing is amazing, hardly a vertical wall or level floor anywhere. A tribute to the skill and expertise of the NT teams responsible for the upkeep. Guides very... Read full review

      We stopped here on the way up North, it is not far off the M6 and is a great distraction from average speed cameras and traffic cones. I’m not sure I have ever seen a structure like this before in... Read full review
