Temple Newsam

Framed within acres of beautiful parkland and sculpted gardens, Temple Newsam provides a breathtaking journey into history. With plenty of centuries-old artefacts to encounter, the imposing Tudor-Jacobean stately home forms the centrepiece of an educational day out. The small admission fee will give you the opportunity to explore the Grade I listed building’s many rooms, which are filled with period pieces such as weaponry, clothing, tableware and furniture. Extensive parkland designed by 18th-century landscape artist Capability Brown features a celebrated, vibrant rhododendron walk along with herb arrangements, rose bushes and floral displays, and many great picnicking spots.

It’s worth braving the slightly intimidating entrance to become immersed in the ground-breaking work that’s on offer and chat to the supremely knowledgeable staff.
