Overview
More
This lovely Elizabethan mansion house with its 12th century monastic origins was Gothicised by Sir Roger Newdegate during the second half of the 18th century and with its soaring fan vaults, plunging pendants and filigree tracery, stands as the most breathtaking and complete example of early Gothic Revival architecture. Arbury Hall, standing in the midst of rolling lawns, surrounded by many acres of beautiful parkland, seven miles from the centre of England has been the home of the Newdegate family since the 16th Century. George Eliot was born on the Estate in 1819 where her father was the Agent and features Arbury in her novel "Scenes of Clerical Life". The Hall and Gardens are open to the public on four Bank Holiday Weekends only (Sunday and Mondays) from Easter to September each year. Pre-booked visits for groups of 25 and over can be arranged during weekdays from April to end of September. For admission prices please see the website.

Only open bank holidays but very interesting visit with a great guide who is very knowledgeable and clearly interested in Arbury Hall and its history.

A lovely way to learn about some of our local history. Who would have thought a piece of history would have it's own dance floor for the family's entertainment. It is a piece of Nuneaton heritage with a beautiful garden to explore and appreciate.

An interesting monument with plenty of history. The hall is built on the site of the formerArbury Priory in a mixture of Tudor and 18th-century Gothic Revival architecture.

Arrived early afternoon, timed slot for guided house tour, viewed grounds and gardens first. Beautiful outlook over fields with livestock. Very well maintained, clean and tidy. House tour ok, bit slow, could be more interesting. Worth visiting gardens.

A family owned property that is only opened on bank holidays. Definitely worth a visit, dog friendly (gardens only) and very knowledgeable guides in the house. The most amazing ceilings there are apparently modelled on Westminster abbey! Interesting family history and wonderful furniture and artwork...More

This is a little gem which is lovely to take our visitors to. It has interesting history and its great that the family still live in the hall. Reasonably priced admission too.
