  • A hidden gem, well preserved family hall with fabulous views and very large parkland. Council run with love and care. Ample car parking a brief walk away, but with disabled access. You can walk the dogs in the park, grab an ice cream at the car park or a coffee in the Pavillion Cafe. Check out Cannon Hall Farm too, it's a separate enterprise next door but worth a visit.
  • Great selection of pottery, love the Moorcroft in particular, the victorian kitchens are great to look around. My kids like the more interactive rooms upstairs where they can dress up in outfits from days of old or do some of the more hands on activities. There's also a lovely room full of glass wear and a military floor. Very much worth a visit
  • Wonderful views, acres of green space. A great museum, an interactive farm, play areas, popular pathways to walk along the riverside, wildlife a plenty, a gift shop, cafe, tea room and many other things to do for any age group from toddlers to those with a greater wealth of life experiences. Spend a few hours or all day and you're sure to enjoy your visit. A multi-million pound project to give the grounds a whole new look and feel has reached the final stages of planning and work is due to start in the very near future. It will be a massive change and is designed to be more accessible to everyone of every conceivable ability. Whether you use a wheelchair, have additional support needs or are in training for the next Olympics, a visit to Cannon Hall will be a day you'll enjoy and remember.
  • Plenty to do for the whole family. Food very good.
  • Slightly annoying that half of the museum was closed for a wedding when we visited. This wasn't advertised on their website beforehand.
