Costumes from all adaptations of Charlotte Bronte’s classic Jane Eyre are on display, including three versions of the costumes worn by Jane Eyre and Mr Rochester and a selection of other outfits and accessories.

Period clothing enthusiasts will be able to see outfits from the 1995 film directed by Franco Zefferelli, the BBC 2006 mini-series starring Ruth Wilson and the latest 2011 film directed by Cary Fukunaga and starring Mia Wasikowska.

There is also an opportunity to take a Behind the Scenes Tour to see the hall from the film’s perspective and see which rooms were used in particular scenes.

Entry to Haddon Hall, including the costume exhibition, is £9.50 for adults, £8.50 for concessions, £5.50 for children and £27.50 for a family ticket (two adults and three children).

Tickets for the Behind the Scenes Tour are £15 and can be booked by calling 01629 812 855 or visiting www.haddonhall.co.uk.
