Forty Hall Museum and Country Park in Enfield

Forty Hall in Enfield is a manor house dating to the 1620s. The building is used as a museum currently and is a Grade 1 listed property. The hall and the formal park are located atop the Forty Hill. To the north of the hall are the Myddelton House and Whitewebbs.




The hall which was closed to public in 2010 was re-opened in June 2012 after some restoration. The Hall has a permanent exhibition which details the story of the residents and the estate through the ages. If you want to get into the grrove of things, then opt for the guided tour which is led by a Jacobean character.








The estate is around 260 acres and has formal gardens a small lake around the house. There is also open park and a farm. The walled garden is beautiful and has a wide range of flowers. You will also get to spot lots of birds here. We spotted the rose-ringed Indian parrot.









The estate also has an orchard, a vineyard, a cafe and a banqueting suite.
