We went specifically to see the Damien Hirst exhibition and enjoyed seeing the modern pictures in a historic setting. The downside - it was not a good environment to enjoy the historic building for its own splendour. We enjoyed the sculptures in the park, both...More

There was so much to do and...More
Delightful visit to the hall and grounds on a lovely summers’ day. The extensive grounds were a pleasure to walk around: the grazing deer, the numerous trees, the beautiful walled gardens, the limed walks in front of the hall to the haha and the hedged...More
There is so much to see at Houghton Hall from the beautiful walled garden to the extensive parkland full of surprises to the aesthetic beauty of the rooms inside the hall itself. Plenty of wildlife to sit and enjoy from Red Kites to Speckled Wood...More
Seeing deer is a bit unpredictable. I only had a glimpse of a massive herd leaving the place on a coach. I think it depends where they graze at the time. Otherwise you cannot walk or stop your car to enjoy taking the... More
Seeing deer is a bit unpredictable. I only had a glimpse of a massive herd leaving the place on a coach. I think it depends where they graze at the time. Otherwise you cannot walk or stop your car to enjoy taking the photos on the way in or out.
