Blackadder Hall

Blackadder Hall

Blackadder Hall, in the BBC One sitcom "Blackadder", has been the official residence of the fictional Blackadder family since at least some time before 1648. It has been the home of two incarnations of the Edmund Blackadder character: Sir Edmund Blackadder (') and Lord Blackadder (').

In "The Cavalier Years", the year is 1648 and the English Civil War was just ended. When Charles I is in flight from Oliver Cromwell and the Roundheads, Sir Edmund Blackadder allows him to stay in a blackcurrant bush at Blackadder Hall. However, Oliver Cromwell arrives and captures the King.

In "Back & Forth", it is New Year's Eve 1999, and Lord Blackadder is entertaining guests at Blackadder Hall. He tells them he has built a time machine and he will go back in time and collect any historical items they want. The time machine actually leads to a trap door to the basement where he has a collection of items. But to his surprise the time machine actually works. When his time machine lands him in the Elizabethan period, Queen Elizabeth I is holding her court at Blackadder Hall and encounters the present day Blackadder, whom she mistakes for one of his ancestors. She asks him for a present and he gives her some polo mints. She rewards him with her crown. The dining room of the house has a portrait of Captain Blackadder from the fourth series of the show.

Other Blackadder family residences include Castle Blackadder, a house in Drury Lane and a house in Billingsgate.
