16. Haddon Hall

Described by the journalist Simon Jenkins as “the most perfect house to survive from the middle ages” Haddon Hall is everything you’d expect from a medieval country house.
You can almost hear the sounds of the banquets and revelries in the banqueting hall, unchanged since Tudor times.
For the film buffs amongst you Haddon hall was used extensively in the film Elizabeth and as Thornfield Hall in the 2011 film of Jane Eyre. It was also used in 1986 as Prince Humperdinck’s castle in cult film The Princess Bride.
