Wimpole Hall

Wimpole Hall is a magnificent country house, part of the grandest working estate in Cambridgeshire. This country house, gardens, landscaped park and Home Farm were created by the greatest names of their day in architecture and landscape design.
 
Discover the beautiful and unexpected Georgian interiors of Gibbs, Thornhill and Soane, contrasting with the more intimate rooms of the last owner, Elsie Bambridge, and the intriguing insight into life below stairs.
 
Stroll around the colourful parterre garden and wander through the Pleasure Grounds to the walled kitchen garden, abundant with fruit and vegetables, which will be served as part of a delicious menu in the restaurant.
 
Stride out across the landscape park, among the gently grazing cattle and sheep and imagine the previous owners planning their visions of grand avenues, spectacular vistas, sweeping serpentine lakes and the dramatic Gothic tower.
