Washington Old Hall is a 17th century manor house, built on the foundations of a 13th century building. It is steeped in history and nestled in the heart of Washington. The building was saved by the affections and hard work of the local community in the 1930’s and offers information of the American connection, 17th textiles and furniture, reflections of Washington as a home over the centuries including tenement life.

The gardens are small but contrasting. Discover the dramatic 17th century parterre, new apple orchard, and the wilds of the nuttery. The nuttery is a nut orchard comprising of hazels (cobs and filberts) and a handful of almond trees.
