Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens
Ayscoughfee Hall Museum
Ayscoughfee Hall was built in the 1450s as a private house, and is surrounded by 5 acres of beautiful gardens. The grade I listed Hall houses an Arts Council England Accredited museum that tells the story of the people who lived here, as well as the story of the historic market town of Spalding and the Lincolnshire Fens.
Many of Ayscoughfee Hall's owners left their mark on the building, resulting in a fascinating mix of architectural styles and features from the Medieval to the Victorian. The museum displays tell the lives of some of the people who lived here, as well as the story of the historic town of Spalding and the surrounding Fenlands.
The Hall is set in five acres of beautiful gardens, which feature a listed War Memorial by the celebrated architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, a childrens play area and an excellent café, all adding up to a fabulous day out.
The Hall and Gardens are almost fully accessible, and there is always something going on.
The Hall is open 10.30am - 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday (open Bank Holidays 10.30am - 4pm).
The Gardens are open dawn to dusk, year round.
All this and it's free to enter too. Check out the website for details
