Set in over 500 acres of historic deer park, Wollaton Hall is a spectacular Tudor building designed by Robert Smythson and completed in 1588.

Following an extensive restoration programme, Wollaton Hall reopened with a number of new displays and refurbished rooms, including Tudor kitchens. Visitors touring the Hall can now view the Prospect Room at the top of the hall, which gives spectacular views over Nottingham.

The Hall also houses Nottingham Natural History Museum.
Wollaton Park's Courtyard Stables are home to Nottingham's Industrial Museum, Steam Engine House, and Cafe. Steamings are held once a month when the Industrial Museum is also open.

Battle of the Nations

  • 3 — 4 May 2015 *on now

The Battle of Nations (UK) 2015 will be held at Wollaton Hall, Nottingham on the 03rd and 04th May 2015. The response from the re-enactors who came to the 2014 event definitely want this to continue for many more years to come, and to become a yearly event to equal Waterloo in the UK. Remember that this event is mainly for the re-enactors to get together and have fun enjoying our hobby, and while doing so raise some money for a good cause!

In 2014 we had Sky television filming the event for a documentary that was aired in early 2015 showing different time periods of re-enacting in the UK; as you all know 2015 is the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo so this could not have been a better time for us to be filmed! The documentary showed every aspect of the event from the early planning stages, through the many ups and downs, the camp's setting up, living history, interviews and the battles.
