Middleton Hall

Near Tamworth, B78 2AE

2021 dates to be announced soon

Middleton Hall has a special place in the history of our understanding of plants. It was the home of Francis Willughby, the naturalist an original Fellow of the Royal Society and it was here that he brought his teacher and friend, the first great English naturalist, John Ray. Ray compiled his Catalogus Angliae here, one of the first attempts at a comprehensive listing of British plants.

Today there are large and small walled gardens, herbaceous borders, orchard and sunken garden.

The grounds are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) including a nine acre lake, noted Walled Garden and a children's play park. Adjacent to the grounds are the RSPB reserve, Middleton Lakes.

There is an adjacent Craft Centre, with specialist shops and cafe.
