27th June – Dolls’ House Collection

Posted on 9th Feb 2024 | Jane

11:30am & 1:30pm

There’s something timelessly fascinating about the magical, miniature world of the dolls’ house, the collection at Hoghton Tower spans three centuries with many fine examples to pique your interest and imagination. From beautiful vintage constructions to some more recent but exquisite houses, the one thing they all have in common is the passion, love, care and skill that has been poured into their creation.

Marvel at the immaculately crafted miniature worlds as you explore this impressive collection of over 70 houses. One of our friendly volunteers will set the scene for you and be on hand to chat during your visit.

Please arrive at least five minutes prior to your chosen session to allow us to give a short introduction before you have time to browse each room.
