Don't know where to start with Brodsworth. We had an amazing day here, staying nearly 6 hours as there was so much to see. As we arrived we were informed in the shop that a guided tour of the ground floor of the house would be starting in 5 minutes so we headed straight to the front door, admiring some... More

Travelling by public transport from Leeds, you have to go to Adwick and get a taxi. there is NO bus service. It was £5 each way. The train for 1 adult and 1 child with a rail card was £7. I am a member of English Heritage so it was free, but they normally charge £11 for adults £6 for... More

We had a great afternoon. The staff were very friendly and informative. What sets this house apart from most heritage sites is that the property has been conserved and maintained as opposed to restored so you can experience it as the last occupant did. All the furniture and belongings belonged to the family that lived there and when you see... More

Unexpected of English Heritage, more NT, not so much a ruin but magnificent gardens with a mansion work in progress. Work the entrance fee if not a member. Was there 5 hours.

There were Victorian games set out in the garden as it was half term, which kept the children amused. This included a Punch and Judy show - brilliant! The children's playground is also excellent. The house itself is very interesting, showing the contrast between life above and below stairs. Some of the volunteer guides were very good with the children,... More

Visited Brodsworth Hall at Springbank weekend, what a lovely place for all ages. The house is magnificent and gardens were beautiful with go access for everyone. The children's play ground kept our two grandchildren very happy and we picnicked before treating ourselves to a cake and coffee at the cafe. The hot food looked very tasty and the cakes we... More

The house is interesting as it is kept original and as it was when the owners left it. Wonderful gardens and pet cemetery. Lovely cafe and seating area. Kids playground. Little shop with good plants. Lots of things to do and see. Would recommend.

English Heritage has wisely opted to conserve rather than restore this building. We started with a short tour and history of the hall, followed by delicious soup in the cafe. We then looked round the whole hall and then wandered through the beautiful gardens before coffee and cake in the cafe. Well worth a visit - it needs a good... More

We arrived around 11am so were too early for the regular viewing of the house but the person at the desk asked us if we would be interested in going on the hour long tour of the ground floor which is guided and was available at mid-day before the house opened for general viewing. We went and had a coffee... More
