About Harvington Hall
A house of near untouched beauty hidden deep in the Worcestershire countryside. Harvington’s history-rich interior holds enthralling tales of devotion and Catholic persecution. There are no less than seven priest hides here (more than any other house in England), as well as an impressive collection of rare Elizabethan wall paintings and many more historical tales.

This is a really interesting place to visit. The guides are dressed in period costume and are really knowledgeable and keen to share their love of the Hall. Their Manager, looking extremely like an oil painting complete with pearl earring has even spent two long periods in two of the many Priest Hides the Hall has to offer. The number of Elizabethan wall paintings are without match elsewhere. To cap it all off the cafe is well stocked and you can even feed the ducks. What's not to like?

What a wonderful experience. We took the guided tour led by Derek H. He is a fantastic guide - so knowledgeable and entertaining. The house is full of history but not lived in since 1696. So not a traditional stately home with lots of opulent furnishings and artefacts! The floors are uneven and the arrangement of the rooms is very higgledy-piggledy! This, along with the seven hidden priestholes is what makes it so fascinating. The gardens are lovely too. And the cafe is superb. Wow!

Booked a free flow tour but it might as well have been guided due to all the info provided by the volunteers in each room. This most unusual moated hall has several hidden priest holes some of which are very well camouflaged. Water from the moat is filtered though underground sandstone to provide clean water in an interior well in the kitchen. The rooms are on a multitude of levels with spiral staircases and uneven floors. A most unusual place. Great second hand bookshop with a list of books available at low prices and even accessible from the storeroom.

What a wonderful place to visit and to learn the fascinating story behind this gem of a house. We visited today and had a lovely lady called "little" Ann as our guide. She was so informative and obviously loved her job because she brought the history of the house and it's occupants alive. How I wish I lived closer to this place as I'd be a regular visitor if I could.

Fabulous historic house. Took the guided tour, our guide, Derek H, was entertaining, informative and a thoroughly nice chap 😊. The house is not owned by the 'big boys', National Trust or English Heritage, so needs as much support as you can. Stayed for an evening with Henry VIII, played by John S White, which was also very entertaining and so realistic. A real gem of a place. Would recommend to anyone, definitely take the guided tour rather than wandering around by yourself, you will learn so much. All in all thank you Harvington Hall for an absolutely brilliant day.
