Eyam Hall

Eyam Hall is a Jacobean manor house in the Derbyshire village of Eyam and has been home to the Wright family for over 300 years.

The house and beautiful walled 17th century garden are open to the public on selected days for guided tours throughout the summer.

Visitors can see the magnificent main hall, the tapestry room, and a bedroom complete with tester bed. The nursery has a collection of toys from 1860 to the present. Throughout the building are historic costumes and artifacts that have been in the Wright family's possession over the centuries.

Next door to Eyam Hall is the Craft Centre with five working craft shops, a gift shop and the Buttery for delicious cakes and sandwiches. Visitors can enjoy outdoor seating on a dry day. The Craft Centre is Eyam Hall's former farmyard.

Across the road from Eyam Hall are a set of wooden stocks.

Eyam is well-known as the Plague Village of the Black Death of 1665, when the villagers isolated themselves from the wider community to avoid further contagion of the deadly disease.
Eyam is a short drive from Buxton on the A623.
