Pearson has taken a trip to Wollinton Hall in Nottingham. The building was built between 1580 and 1588. There is plenty of grounds to walk around on a nice summers day. The house is impressive but compare to other manor house located around the Uk it is quite small. Wollinton Hall and Deer Park is currently a council owned building, this is rare because most manor houses located in the UK are managed but the national trust.
The hall is open to the general public free of charge. but you will have to pay for the the car parking. The parking costs are £2.00 for 3 hours or £4.00 for all day.
Also in the court yard there is a engine museum that costs £2 per person.
If you fancy a bit to eat there is a cafe on site. Seating is limited on a bad day but if the weather is fine, the cafe does provide plenty of seating outside.
This is a great budget day out.
