Not too far from city centre the Hall and deer park well worth a visit The Hall itself a star attraction with it's large natural history exhibits provide a fascinating insight. Entry to museum is free and depends on donations Something for all ages and the children there when we visited were enthralled. The Hall itself is worth a visit... More

The children's play area has been made bigger an better but the puplic toilets at the play area are vile . Floors flooded . Never checked that day as no toilet paper in any of them . Water was so deep went over my shoes . Such a shame as its a great day out for the family .

We live really close to the park, and it's such an impressive place to bring friends for free. Its so grand and on a sunny day, looks so beautiful. Make sure you go through the gate on the left hand side of the house and see all of the deer and the lake behind the house! The house is interesting... More

Okay, not quite free, as you have to pay for parking if you drive there. This place is in my local area and I have a bit of an affection for it; the memories of Sunday afternoons with my parents and later as teenagers it was a just far enough from home to seem like a long trip on a... More

A beautiful old home, in beautiful grounds, and then filled with heaps of antiques, and other items, but.............. areas were closed off, with only school children allowed, other buildings not open. Perhaps as a private home it would have been rather special, if you like dark rooms. Couldn't believe that the deer stayed in the open paddocks, and were able... More

Park is very nice in which you will find deers, lake, goose, ducks and is a very good place for kids. If you are not taking guided tour, the entrance in the building is free of charge.

We loved the walks, the garden and the resident deer. The Hall sadly needs some major renovation. The park is right on the bus route and is easily reached from the center of town.

I like walking through the park and seeing the wild deer, I like walking around the lake feeding the ducks and swans. The museum a bit out dated but worth a look at were the shot some of the Batman movie. The kids play park ideal for kids and it transforms completely for the attractions offered throughout the year
