We had an amazing few days staying in the EH cottage here. It is wonderful - superbly equipped and very peaceful (even with the Rockingham racetrack doing its bit and the peacocks shouting in the background!). Kirby is a gem, there is so much to learn from its history, and it is a privilege to be on site when it... More

I start by saying check the car racing events,this is because a race circuit is about one mile away from Kirby hall.This is obviously nothing to do with the English heritage site,but there is so much noise coming form the track that it totally ruined the pleasure that could have been enjoyed on our visit. Anyway mini rant over,the gardens... More

Visited here Sunday 23 August. Got here just after opening and more or less had the place to ourselves. Definitely take the audio guide as it has so much information which you would miss just looking around. Although most a roofless building you can see what a beautiful building it would have been. In the part that has been restored... More

A stunning avenue of Horse Chestnut trees sets the imagination for the rest of your visit especially if you take the audio tour. This not only give you the information and history of this Elizabethan manor, it also allows you to imagine what life was probably like, for all who lived and worked there. If the weather is good a... More

The most beautiful place for miles around to take a picnic. The architecture is breathtaking and the grounds are a vision of the past. Always feel like I have to return before I have even left.

Kirby hall is a (mostly) roofless Elizabethan manor house, and well worth a visit. There is a small car park on site, which is rather remote but well signposted from the main road. I was offered an audio tour in the small shop, but I usually prefer to explore these places by the signs available. The great thing about Kirby... More

The greeting we received from the staff was very welcoming and we opted for the audio tour. The history was very informative and one can imagine how amazing this building was in it's day. The tour takes about an hour. The gardens have been carefully restored to their former glory and look incredible. There is no café on this site... More

Visiting the ruins of this amazing house, you can only imagine how beautiful and grand it once was. The house takes around an hour to get around and entry includes an audio guide. This is a beautiful ruin, yet full of sadness that only the shell of the house is still standing. I would highly recommend a visit here -... More
