Riverside House : Places to Visit

This Medieval and Tudor manor house is a Peak District gem. Inside, there is a fine example of a medieval kitchen; and an Elizabethan long gallery - the most modern room in the house! The exterior walls are adorned with climbing roses whilst the garden brims with roses, delphiniums and clematis.

Haddon Hall is a popular choice as a film and TV location. Most recently The Other Boleyn Girl and Jane Eyre.

A restaurant and gift shop complete the visitor's experience
