Hagley Hall and Park are among the supreme achievements of eighteenth-century English architecture and landscape gardening. They remain largely the creation of one man, George, 1st Lord Lyttelton, landscaped the grounds in the new ‘picturesque’ style and who was responsible for the building of the house as it is seen today.
There has been a park at Hagley since the reign of Edward III but the present outstanding landscape was created between 1747 and 1758 with follies designed by Lord Camelford and Sanderson Miller amongst others.
Home to Lord & Lady Cobham, Hagley Hall, last of the great Palladian houses, with its rich Rococo decoration and surrounded by 350 acres of picturesque parkland, is a remarkable tribute to the artistic achievements of the great eighteenth-century amateurs, offering a splendid and unique venue for your wedding day or corporate event.
We are open for public tours from January to March each year.
