Visited Kirby Hall by chance but what a find. Excellent value for money electrolytic 1.5 hours wandering around. The audio guide was really informative. Would recommend a visit. Only downside is there is no tea room.. ..

Hi No it really is just a very big ruin. But I don't know about the surrounding area, but it would be worth a visit anyway!
