The grounds are beautiful. The story of the home being moved from England was very interesting and adds to the story of the house and the family who lived there. We would highly recommend this tour.

This piece of Elizabethan history is gorgeous! I've taken students many times when we're reading Shakespeare. It's like stepping back in time, in England (because that's what it is!). Tours are well-done. Spring is particularly beautiful during tulip season.More

I wasn’t sure what to expect on this visit, since it was planned by my sister as we were visiting her from out of town. It’s a very unassuming place at first, and the price to get in is extremely reasonable. You get a wonderful...More

You can read the history of the place- let’s just say it is an logistical and engineering marvel that this was toted across the Atlantic. What makes this so wild is it is mostly wood as opposed to the Cloisters in NYC which was also...More
