Old Gorhambury House

The remains of an imense mansion built in 1563-8 by Sir Nicholas Bacon, Queen Elizabeth's Lord Keeper, and twice visited by the Queen. Its extravagant two-storey porch survives, with parts of the hall, chapel and clock-tower. Maintained by English Heritage.

Note: the picture opposite comes from Gorhambury House (see separate entry) as Old Gorhambury was covered in scaffolding when we visited.


  • Dates and times: Open all year (except 1 June) at any reasonable time. Accessible on foot by a two mile path or via the gardens of Gorhambury House (Thurs 2-5pm, May to Sept).
