Eyam Hall and Craft Centre in Derbyshire - Visitor Information 2016
Eyam Hall is situated at Eyam, famous as the Plague village, in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District.
Eyam Hall began life as a generous wedding present in 1672, and has been in the Wright family for eleven generations since. The Hall has a wealth of lived in charm, including a Jacobean staircase which leads up the tapestry room – where the tapestries pre-date the hall by two hundred years. The interiors have evolved and adapted to suit the needs of the family, some of whom you’ll be able to meet in the family portraits peering down from the walls. The gritstone outer walls in contrast remain largely unchanged, along with the layout of the charming walled garden. The Hall and gardens are now cared for by the National Trust.
Eyam Hall is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding village and countryside. The village of Eyam is famous for having had the plague and quarantined themselves successfully in 1665. To help you to explore this history we’ve created a number of walks starting from Eyam Hall. Pick up a ‘thought walk’ from the National Trust shop to direct you and choose a story to follow as you explore the village.
Enjoy the cobbled farmyard, now a thriving with café, shops and locally made crafts.
