Gainsborough Old Hall


Gainsborough Old Hall

One of the best preserved, timber-framed manor houses in the UK, dating to the 15th century and found in the centre of Gainsborough, north of Lincoln.

A castle and manor at Gainsborough dates back to King Stephen in the twelfth century but the current building was built in 1455 when Thomas Burgh inherited the manor.

Gainsborough Old Hall has a magnificent Great Hall at its centre, linking the East and West Ranges, and boasts one of the best preserved examples of a late medieval kitchen in England. Famous visitors to the Old Hall inlcude Richard III, Henry VIII, and John Wesley.

Pay a visit to learn about the families that have lived in and managed the old hall through the centuries and to find out how the house has been involved in British history - including the fascinating story of the Mayflower Pilgrims.
