Summertime at Little Hall! History on Your Doorstep

Written by MiriamSpall on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 - 11:15

If you’re looking for a unique day out, and maybe a break from the burning sunshine, then a visit to Little Hall in Lavenham is a must.

This ancient clothiers house has stood guard on the edge of the village’s Market Place since it was built in the 14th Century and offers a lot to see for the 21st Century visitor.

Restored by the Gayer-Anderson twin brothers in the 1920s and 1930s Little Hall is crammed full of artefacts collected from their global adventure, each with a story to tell courtesy of Little Hall’s knowledgeable guides.

Little Hall was built to last and it is a cool haven in the summertime away from the heat of the day.

Younger visitors are looked after too. Smaller children can search for the cuddly cats which are hidden all over the house while older ones can turn detective and answer quiz questions.

Once the tasks are complete they can claim a small gift and a sticker in the shop.

Outside, the gardens are a haven of peace and tranquillity and include a traditional Tudor Knot Garden.

Little Hall is open Monday 10am to 1pm and Tuesday to Sunday and on Wednesday afternoons visitors can enjoy spinning and weaving demonstrations.

Admission is £4.50 and accompanied children get un free.
