Wonderful Hall and tranquil and delightful gardens to walk or seat yourself for a while. We've taken to taking a flask and sandwiches as the cafe, on the one time we tried it, offered us the most horrible attempt at a ploughmans ever seen by man. It was just a mound of lettuce and a slice of ham. We were... More

We called in on our way to Leeds after seeing the Hall in the Heritage book. It was a quick visit so we didn't see much of the impressive gardens. The massive house looked 'sad' to us as it has been frozen in time from when the elderly owner passed away. We are used to seeing houses restored to their... More

Regular visitor to Brodsworth - lovely day out at any time of the year. Often has various events on, well run, clean and well manicured gardens. Fabulous wooden play area for younger children with picnic tables. Lovely cream tea available in the café, be patient service can be a little slow! Magical place for garden lovers!

Brodsworth Hall is a really interesting house to visit. Not particularly old compared to some but all the contents are original to the previous owners and nothing brought in at all. The collection of marble statutes are fascinating both inside and outside the house. Another bonus is the number of rooms open for viewing. A brief guided tour is recommended... More

To me this house is "magical" - step back in time. Nothing has been touched since the last occupier left. The kitchens are a delight and past entertaining must have been grand affairs. Autumn enables a view of the house when approaching from the east and shows its superb architecture off magnificently. Read the history of the Thelluson family and... More

Have you ever wanted to go back to a time before life became frantic? Then Brodsworth Hall and gardens is for you. It is extremely well done - in that nothing has been done to the house since the last owner left. It is an authentic experience of times past - such a nice contrast to other great houses that...

Arrived on sunny mid week October morning to fill a few hours before a flight. The house was opening at 1pm however they were running tours of the house at 11 and 12 for approx 40 mins, which I prefer (too lazy to read guide books) The gardens were particularly lovely, even with autumn maintenance going on and worth a...

My friend and I had free entry here as part of a stay with a hotel dea . We knew very little about the place and had no idea what to expect, we were both very surprised and pleased with the halls. We managed to get into the free taster tour which was very informative, and the volunteer staff around... More
