A fantastic house and gardens. The house is advertised as being open from 11am however this is not true. The house is open from 1pm with an option for a guided tour at 11m and 12pm. We had arrived at 10:30 planning to spend the morning there before heading on to Yorkshire just to find that 11am tour was cancelled... More

Took a party of 5/6 year old school children, and we all enjoyed the experience very much. We spent the morning in the house which was very interesting. The guides were informative and made the learning fun by using props and allowing the children to take part in short activities in different areas of the house. They were encouraged to... More

A sunny Good Friday brought out the crowds to Brodsworth Hall. This is now an English Heritage property and is not cheap to visit - £9.70 for adults. There is ample free car parking (unlike some nearby National Trust Properties) The grounds and gardens are the highlight of a visit. In early Spring the rose garden is not ready, but... More

Interesting gardens looking very colourful in the sunshine. Nice to see children playing croquet on the lawns. The volunteers were very informative. Excellent displays and exhibition. Had a lovely coffee and cake in the outside eating area then treat ourselves in the shop it was a decision between the cherry wine or the ginger liqueur. Well worth a visit. Great... More

Relatively modern property and well stocked with plenty to see and a strong story. Attentive and friendly staff throughout. Beautifully kept gardens and topiary. Lift to upper floor.

English Heritage are responsible for restoring this property initially, and since then has steadily turned it into a time machine allowing "ordinary people" to experience the life (briefly) of times past, currently celebrating with various exhibits around the outbreak 100 years ago of WW1. Inside are a company of enthusiastic and helpful guides in excellent surroundings who make the house... More

A drop of a hat day out during the holidays . Brodsworth Hall was recommended to us by a friend and I am so glad that is was and that we went. Walking through the gardens was lovely and we will be returning in the summer to get the full experience of the gardens in full bloom. My 8 year... More

Wanted somewhere to take friends on a visit from the North east, visit to Brodsworth Hall and Gardens was an excellent day out. The gardens are the best seen by all of us, a treat to see. The house was interesting and it was explained by the very helpful staff why the house was in the condition it is and... More

Brodsworth hall is an English Heritage site and is pretty amazing at the best of times but at present if you visit you get to experience Brodsworth in wartime as well as when it was ran as a home. Access into the property is by a ramp and the steps up to the first floor can be challenging. There is... More

Brodsworth's 'unique selling point' is that the house was left as it was when the last occupant bequeathed it to English Heritage - so, rather than being artificially restored to a particular point in history, you get to see the house 'warts and all' with rooms ranging from Victorian splendour, through wartime austerity, to fading 20th Century glory. As the... More
