Little Hall

Little Hall, Lavenham

Little Hall is an independent, accredited museum, owned by the Suffolk Buildings Preservation Trust. It has been opened to the public for over 40 years and is still run entirely by volunteers. 

A late 14th Century Hall House on the main square, it mirrors the history of Lavenham over the centuries. First built in the 1390s as a clothier’s house and workplace, it was enlarged, improved and modernised in the mid-1550s and greatly extended later.

Little Hall was discovered and restored by the Gayer Anderson twins in the 1920s and 1930s. They restored the house and made it their home, filling it with an eclectic mix of antiques, pictures, books, china and art.

The beautiful grounds combine a knot garden planned along Tudor lines with a traditional English walled garden. There is a small shop selling guide books and souvenirs.
