Heslington Hall
Heslington Hall
Heslington Hall, as it now stands, is a twentieth-century modification of a typical Elizabethan country house. The original house was completed about 1568; some parts remain including 2 staircase towers, the courtyard and the pendant stucco ceiling over the great hall, but most of it was rebuilt in the nineteenth century.

During the Second World War the Hall became the Headquarters of 64 Group, Bomber Command. After the war, the Hall stood empty for almost twenty years until, it was converted for use by the University. Heslington Hall has been the University’s principal administrative building since 1962.
