 The 13th century Grade I listed Medieval hall in Durham City provides a spectacular backdrop to the stunning gardens. Visitors from all over the world come to share in the timeless magic of Crook Hall and leave inspired by these idyllic English themed gardens. Soak up the atmosphere over a home-made cream tea in the pretty courtyard or in front of a log fire in the Georgian dining room. The gardens are just a short walk from Durham City’s bustling market place. Country Life described the Hall as having “history, romance and beauty”, and it’s just waiting to capture your heart.
