Madingley Hall

Madingley Hall is a mid C16th manor house considerably rebuilt in the C18th in the Jacobean style. In 1756 the formal gardens were swept away by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown & the grounds landscaped in the then-fashionable style. In 1861 the Hall was used briefly by the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) while he was studying at the University. There are tales of him being seen walking the local lanes and footpaths. In 1948 the Hall and grounds were acquired by the University of Cambridge, and it is now home to the University’s Institute of Continuing Education, and also used for conferences and as a wedding venue. Grade I listed.
