House The house is not so grand as it's near neighbours Althorp, Kelmarsh & Cottesbrook but had a charm of it's own and a lived in feel. Our lady guide was very informative and identified most of the portrait paintings of the family and others also allowing plenty of time for us to look around the rooms. Unlike most other... More

The guided tour was very thorough and run by a person (with a splendid moustache!) who was clearly passionate about the place. Lots of fascinating insights and anecdotes - well worth the 90 minutes it took. Opens at 2 and first tour is 2.15.

A very interesting day out. I was born no too far from here but was not aware at all about its fascinating history. Spend some time here to learn a lot about this very famous family. Well worth the trip

We visited Lamport Hall on a day when the Northamptonshire Art and Crafts Associations held exhibitions and craft-making sessions. These were in the Stable Block Courtyard. The House was open for guided tours; well-worth the hour ( a bit longer actually) that we spent in, the house learning about the Isham family that lived here. Being a lovely Summer's day,... More

Went for the Country Fair and it was a full day out with enough going on to keep everyone happy for the whole day. Excellent value for money and food, drink, etc., was all a reasonable price. The hall itself is well worth a visit and the gardens delightful.

Lovely house on a par with national trust properties, though its a shame they are not a member (purely from an expense point of view. Nice garden though there are a LOT of gnomes! The kids enjoy gnome spotting, so its quite good fun! I would also recommend the antiques and vintage fairs that are held here twice a year.... More

Lamport Hall is an excellent example of the Country House which remains in the family and is now run as a commercial business to help with its vast maintenance costs. It is a little smaller than some of the other well-known properties but it is truly worth a visit for the wealth of interior decorations, such as original panel paintings,... More

A pleasant house, nicely presented but not of real interest although the staff were very helpful and well informed about the property and its history.
