Behind the Scenes of Grimsthorpe Castle

£750 per couple

Stay with Hambleton Hall this summer and enjoy exclusive access to proprietor, Tim Hart’s favourite Lincolnshire stately Grimsthorpe Castle, the final masterpiece of Sir John Vanbrugh (Blenheim Palace, Castle Howard).

This 16th century estate was presented by Henry VIII as a wedding gift to William, 11th Lord Willoughby de Eresby and his Spanish bride, Maria de Salinas, lady-in-waiting and confidante of Henry’s Queen, Katherine of Aragon. The ownership of Grimsthorpe has remained in successive generations of the same family united under one ancient title, the Barony of Willoughby de Eresby.

Grimsthorpe have organised for your own private tour with one of their wonderful guides when the Castle is empty of other visitors. Please let the hotel know if you would like them to arrange transport to and from Grimsthorpe.
