Melford Hall

Melford Hall is one of East Anglia's finest Tudor mansions and most celebrated Elizabethan houses. See the classic Tudor interior and panelled banqueting hall where Elizabeth I was entertained lavishly, along with 2,000 members of her Court.
 
Regency, Georgian and Victorian rooms chart the tastes of the Hyde Parker family, who have lived here since 1786. A naval family, the house is filled with reminders of their history including fine nautical paintings and even plunder looted from a Spanish ship in 1762. 
 
During the Second World War, Melford was home to evacuee children from London and British army soldiers including the 1st Battalion of the Royal Hampshire Regiment, who spearheaded the assualt on Gold Beach during the D-Day landings. 
 
Melford also boasts a connection with Beatrix Potter, who sketched here on her visits.
 
Facilities include a shop, plant sales and light refreshments area.
