Overview
More
This lovely Elizabethan mansion house with its 12th century monastic origins was Gothicised by Sir Roger Newdegate during the second half of the 18th century and with its soaring fan vaults, plunging pendants and filigree tracery, stands as the most breathtaking and complete example of early Gothic Revival architecture. Arbury Hall, standing in the midst of rolling lawns, surrounded by many acres of beautiful parkland, seven miles from the centre of England has been the home of the Newdegate family since the 16th Century. George Eliot was born on the Estate in 1819 where her father was the Agent and features Arbury in her novel "Scenes of Clerical Life". The Hall and Gardens are open to the public on four Bank Holiday Weekends only (Sunday and Mondays) from Easter to September each year. Pre-booked visits for groups of 25 and over can be arranged during weekdays from April to end of September. For admission prices please see the website.

Open Bank Holidays only apart from the occasional special day. Nice grounds with water features and some wildlife, decent gardens. Timed guided tours only but these are very good. Pleasant tea room. Recommended.

Unfortunately the Hall is only open on Bank holidays but well worth a visit. The house itself is stunning and full of family history. The ceilings are unbelievably beautiful. A walk around the grounds adds to a very pleasant visit.

Check opening days as very limited. Lovely day out. Timed house tours. Tour was interesting and lasted about 45 minutes. Guide was excellent and didn't waffle on. Beautiful rooms and gardens with lake. Would definitely recommend a visit

Only open bank holidays but very interesting visit with a great guide who is very knowledgeable and clearly interested in Arbury Hall and its history.

A lovely way to learn about some of our local history. Who would have thought a piece of history would have it's own dance floor for the family's entertainment. It is a piece of Nuneaton heritage with a beautiful garden to explore and appreciate.
