‘Logically it should not still be standing up!’
Seeing the tumbling architecture of Little Moreton Hall for the first time, engineers in 1990 could not believe their eyes. Fortunately this timber-framed building, curled around with a scenic moat, has defied logic for over 500 years.
Discover something new
Join in with one of our free guided tours and discover the story of Little Moreton Hall from the first foundations (or lack of) to the present day. Find out about life in the 1600s and discover the root of some common words, including, ‘chairman’ and ‘board-game’.
Knot just a garden
Nestled at the back of the hall is the manicured knot garden. You’ll also find herbs and vegetables that the Tudors would have used for their cooking and medicines.
We use seasonal produce from the garden in our Mrs Dale's Pantry and Little Tea Room, where a delicious selection home-made cakes, light lunches and afternoon teas are served daily.
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
Joint ticket available 1 April to 25 October.
