Took a group of two dozen people to Newstead Abbey, and enjoyed a superb visit to this very interesting house. The guide (Trish) was excellent, and gave us a factual and entertaining tour, which lasted nearly an hour and a half. Not only is the house well worth a visit, but also the grounds are lovely to walk around. Afterwards... More

Love Newstead Abbey grounds. Great family adventures; lots of exciting areas for young people to explore. Good facilities. We got married here 14 years ago in the Orangery but saw parts of the grounds today we never knew existed then. A 'must' for families.

I went here for a tour with my mum last weekend. We toured the house and the very informative tour guides were fountains of knowledge and passion. The grounds are spectacular. It was £7 each to get in and well worth it. I think we would revisit. It was fabulous

I just loved my day here. It's a very peaceful place, and unbelievably beautiful. The old abbey/house itself are just gorgeous and incredibly striking as you walk up to it from the car park (it costs £6 to park for the day). Do have as long a walk as possible around the gardens, there really is so much to see... More

What a superb welcome was offered by the attendant on the gate to Newstead Abbey. With good humour and cheerfulness he gave us directions and advice for our visit, making our elderly mother very welcome enabling us to park close to the house. The gate attendant is a credit to the City Council

We as a family found the house a little dark but beautiful. Great fun dressing up in the old clothes. Stunning grounds and meeting peacocks, (we didn't know they also came in white). The entrance fee was a little on the steep side especially as we had to pay to park. Food in the cafe again a little expensive but... More

I arranged afternoon tea at Newstead Abbey to celebrate my Nans 80th birthday and was very impressed! We were treated to enjoy it in the Victorian kitchen where we had the room to ourselves and our own server for the afternoon. The food was delicious, the freshly made still warm scones were our favourite! And to top off our time... More

Lovely place to visit and have a decent walk round. Plenty to see and kids can learn about the history of the place. Ample parking available most of the time.
