The interior of the hall didn't seem particularly interesting to my uncultured eye. However there were plenty of helpful and friendly staff on hand if anyone had any questions. The garden was undoubtedly the highlight of the trip with a quite exceptional display of topiary....More

One of the oldest gardens surrounding a beautiful manor house. It is just beautiful and a must see place. If you are traveling up north to the Lakes, stop at Levens as it is really worth seeing.

We walked to Levens Hall and were slightly surprised at the entry fees. The Hall is well presented and has that “lived in” look that makes it particularly appealing. The guides were most helpful and in addition each room has detailed information sheets. The gardens...More

We felt as though we had followed the white rabbit and ended up in Wonderland! What an absolutely amazing garden, unbelievable topiary and exquisite planting. A willow maze and pleached lime walk completed the experience. The house was stunning, well explained and all staff throughout...More

With over 10 main dishes to choose from, in addition to 4 salads (all of which can be selected as a side dish or a main), plus 4 brunch options, and a selection of sandwiches, "Limited catering facilities" could reasonably be considered as misleading. If...More

Firstly, the cafe. Sandwich was glorious in size and content. Too big to finish and too good to waste; a box was quickly provided for me to take half home. Fruit cake was probably the best I have ever eaten (and I've had a few...More

The Leven Hall gardens need to be seen to be believed. Even if you're not particularly interested in gardens, the topiary is straight out of an Alice in Wonderland fantasy, it's just awesome. So it's great to also have the play park, willow structures and...More

We arrived at lunchtime and ate at the new Levens Kitchen. The choice/food was much better than expected. Empty plates all round! We then had a look around the house. It was stunning. So old and so much history. Next, the gardens. There is topiary...More

You can buy tickets anytime you like online. They don't need to be printed and so showing them to our ticket kiosk attendant on your phone is totally fine. We look forward to seeing you soon
