Harvington Hall

At Harvington Hall, visitors step back in time to discover how English Catholics lived in terror during the second half of Elizabeth’s reign.  They experience the very special beauty of Elizabethan wall paintings, original panelling and floorboards.

The Hall has seven remaining priest hides, more than any other house in England. Each corner and staircase reveals the history of Recusant Catholics – being fined for not attending church, the countrywide banning of Mass, the hunting of priests and the sordid, hair-raising history of torture and execution. 

Harvington brings the past to life in vivid, thrilling detail.
