This is one of English Heritage's best sites. There are beautiful well-tended formal gardens with beautiful flower displays and plenty of parkland to stroll around or picnic in. The house, which runs tours in the morning, is open for you to look around on your own in the afternoon. It is full of furniture and artefacts that date back to... More

Although the building is well presented and maintained, I feel that something is missing. Somewhere along the way, the soul of this house seems to have been lost. Too me A lot of time has been consumed in preservation of years of neglect, and as such, much of the character has been lost. It's only my opinion, but I think... More

Fascinating place. Beautiful location with very easy motorway access which belies the peace of the place itself. English Heritage seem to have done a great job and the range of events held there is impressive. The staff were some of the most welcoming I've encountered during a summer of day trips with the family & appeared to know their stuff... More

Be aware that the house does not open until 1 pm but this gives time to wander round the excellent gardens. These are very well kept with striking colour schemes and interesting features and a variety of landscaping around every corner. On the day we visited, they were playing croquet on the immaculate lawns. We had lunch at the tea... More

If you are looking for a buitifull stately home this is not the one. This is not a restoration project it's purely preservation with all the problems and neglect over the years preserved only. The Gardens are ok if the weathers nice and personally it was not a place you will spend a lot of time 90 minutes should be... More

Do get there in time to get a free ticket to one of the taster tours at 11 or 12; spaces are limited and it is a must. You get to see a few of the ground floor rooms and get the stories behind the house. Our guide had been there since EH took it over and had met family... More

We called into Brodsworth when on our way from Chesterfield to York, as we had seen some good reviews. We tried the tea room first for an early lunch as we missed the guided tour at noon and had to wait until 1pm to go round the house. The food was really rather poor quality, the queue system and layout... More

Visited the Hall after a chance meeting with a couple at an attraction we both went to but found closed! They said, you must visit Brodsworth, so we did, and what a delightful time capsule this place is. A peep into Victorian life of a family with fading fortunes and how they struggled to keep their lives and position in... More

Had a lovely day out at Brodsworth Hall. The house itself was ok. Not of interest for me but after paying we took advantage and had a nosey . The garden is stunning though and very well kept. Only let down apart from the price was also the cafe, very expensive and food wasn't nice at all. Poor service with... More
