A medieval world in the great hall
Step back in time as you explore the ‘medieval’ hall, complete with minstrels' gallery. From the gallery get a closer look at the elaborate ceiling patterns or admire the chivalrous banners and shields. Can you identify the stone carvings, portraying aspects of medieval life, including the king, farmers and guards?
Books galore in the library
There’s plenty to see in the library, from the intricately decorated ceiling to the shelves full of rare books. Sitting on bookshelves and hiding in the alcoves are some unusual Martinware ceramics, including the grotesque spiny beast and peculiar birds.
