Hanbury Hall…

Today my father and I visited Hanbury Hall a National Trust stately home, it was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon and the weather was so glorious. Hanbury Hall is a beautiful William and Mary-style house built in 1701 by Thomas Vernon, a lawyer and whig MP for Worcester. Hanbury Hall is a beautiful William and Mary-style house built in 1701 by Thomas Vernon, a lawyer and whig MP for Worcester. Inside a mix of interiors await to be discovered, from the restored Hercules rooms and recreated Gothic corridor, to the recently decorated parlour and stunning staircase wall-paintings by Sir James Thornhill. We didn’t end up going inside I think this was due to the lovely weather and the fact we didn’t arrive till quite late in the day, we did visit the tea room though. Surrounding the house is twenty acres of gardens with recreated early 18th-century gardens and 400 acres of park, which we did spend all of our time wandering around. I really enjoyed roaming around the the grounds, with lots of pretty flowers and with the beautiful manor house in the back ground.

I’m wearing my new Topshop dress and hat. I’ve been in love with this hat for some time and even stalked it while at work (basically wearing it on my shifts). The dress has a fun peter pan collar and a cute daisy print.

At the front of the hall were these lovely gates with a court yard.

After walking around the gardens we came a cross a little hut near a blowing green we shot some outfit photos then did a couple more with the house in the back ground.
