Visitors to one of Derbyshire’s most historic landmarks can enjoy a complimentary glass of mulled wine or cup of tea this weekend despite the recent weather doing its best to thwart what has become a traditional Easter opening.
Haddon Hall will open for the first time this year on Thursday at 12 noon and visitors can enjoy this magnificent Tudor house all over the Easter weekend up to and including Tuesday April 2. On Sunday children wearing an Easter bonnet will be admitted free of charge and there will be an Easter Egg Hunt Quiz and face painting in return for a donation to North Derbyshire Macmillan Cancer Care.
Administrator Janet Blackburn said: “All the staff have worked tirelessly to clear the snow and ice to ensure we can open on time. Haddon is a magnificent spectacle when it is covered in snow and we hope people will come and see at first hand how beautiful it looks.”
Anyone planning to visit should note that there will be no disabled car parking available and sensible footwear and clothing is advised in light of the conditions. Normal admission prices will apply and the licensed restaurant and the Gatehouse Gift Shop will both be open. Last entry will be 4pm on each day.
