This has to be one of the most amazing houses I have visited, the building its self is stunning, the interior is immaculate well preserved with so much to see, as you walk around the house you fell the history all around. If you plan on visiting the house give yourself plenty of time you will not be disappointed.

What a fantastic place this is and how lucky the locals are to have it on their doorstep. An excellent place for a family day out. Huge area of parkland, lots of parking, great playground - and all free! There's a small farm with animals, and a tea shop. Lots of areas to picnic. The house is well worth a... More

The inhabitants of Leeds do not always appreciate how lucky they are having so many parks to visit and all of them free. I love Temple Newsam as I have a bench dedicated to my late wife there. Our visit started in the Café where there is a menu to suit all tastes. A trip round the house followed and... More

Temple News am grounds and gardens were lovely and we'll kept but the poor state of the farm and the catering spoilt our experience.

Me and my partner took our 6 month old nephew here and what a brilliant afternoon we had. When we arrived at 1.30pm, we were able to find a space in the car park fairly quickly, even though it was a beautiful day. Firstly, we visited the home farm, reasonably priced and we had access in and out all day.... More

What a gem this place is, we took a bus from the centre and walked up the hill to the house. The house is magnificent with period furniture and wall hangings. Really fantastic one of the best country houses I have visited. The Capability Brown garden although lacking the pond was spectacular and a really lovely walk even with lots... More

Went into the park and parked up near the entrance and wandered down the tree lune path towards the house, cost 14.80 for two of us, we took the underground tour through the cellars and then self navigated the upper rooms, guides are readily available in most rooms. A wander down to the farm afterwards we saw the lambs /... More
