  • I was born and bred in Gainsborough but never had the opportunity to "see inside"whilst living here. It was derelict and unsafe. I left in 1956 and my visit to my old home town has fulfilled a very long held wish..to go inside. It is beautifully restored to its former glory; an understatement! Where wood has had to replaced it has been aged and stained.There appear to be lots of "school visits" as, I presume, it is a perfect example of its age. The pupils certainly come out excited by it. WELL WORTH A VISIT I loved it and will come again.
  • Amazing but if history and in a great position, walk past it every day at work and it still amazes me, just shows how crazy life must have been back in the day. Needs more visitors to keep the up keep of the place and needs better parking but it's nothing major. With a church so close it could just be one of the best places to go and have a tea or coffee with friends and family in Gainsborough.
  • This weekend it was the Gainsborough beer festival, the festival was held in the 15th century Old Hall, a truly magnificent building to hold a beer festival, worth a visit any time of the year.
  • Good place to visit, friendly and helpful staff. Lots of history and a well preserved building.
  • My children did a tour & a talk. It was fantastic. The staff are very knowledgeable & answered all our questions
