Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens

About the attraction

Cannon Hall is a country house museum set in 70 acres of historic parkland. For over two hundred years Cannon Hall was home to the Spencer (later Spencer-Stanhope) family, who made their fortune in the local iron industry.

In the 1760s the architect John Carr of York was employed by the family to enlarge the Hall and redesign the interior. Subsequent alterations include the addition of the magnificent oak-panelled Ballroom in 1891.

The Tearooms are open at weekends and during school holidays for homemade light refreshments in the traditional setting of the kitchens and Servants' Hall. The Museum also has a shop stocking a range of greetings cards, local history books, confectionery and giftware.

Cannon Hall has a lively programme of events throughout the year and runs a temporary exhibition and education programme. Cannon Hall is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, and also provides an ideal setting for conferences, business meetings and corporate hospitality.

For your enjoyment of this attraction please note Cannon Hall Museum is a No Smoking venue.
