Cannon Hall Museum & Park

Cannon Hall Stately House is home to the Canon Hall Museum. Within the museum are collections of artworks including artworks including paintings, English furniture, Arts and Crafts ceramics and modern glassware. It also houses the Regimental Museum of the 13th/18th Royal Hussars (Queen Mary’s Own) and the Light Dragoons.

The Cannon Hall Country Park, also known as Cawthorne Park, offers a great outdoor space to play or take a stroll. The park has sweeping grasslands, woodlands, a stream and lake. The Fairyland garden was designed in the late 19th Century by Sir Walter Spencer-Stanhope as a place to play. Stone arches with winding paths, fish ponds, stands of Yew trees and a stream with stone bridge are some of the features of the garden.

The Cottage Garden is a restored Georgian walled garden. The garden has a vast array of fruit trees, especially pear trees which are the feature of an annual pear day held in the gardens.
