What a great place to see history in the building and the people who have lived there. The guides were very knowledgeable and happy to talk you through things. The museum part in the barn area out the back is great to get a look into yesteryear. You might think the Hall looks familiar, that's because it's featured in the BBC period drama Gentleman Jack. In the park grounds there is a very good cafe, for either coffee & cake or lunch.

I loved my visit to Shibden Hall, it was quiet enough that I could take my time looking at each room and reading all the information for each area. I didnt feel rushed at any point. This place is just so detailed, and full of so much amazing history. The two volunteers who were there during my visit were wonderful! Such friendly people, full of information and facts. I was glad it was quiet as I got to talk to them for a while, especially Helen, she was so friendly and we spoke for quite a while! For £8 this place is a bargain to visit. I am so grateful that Shibden Hall has been kept on such amazing condition and that we are able to visit and find out so much about Anne Lister and her grand plans for shabby little Shibden. Thank you to the volunteers that make visiting so wonderful and welcoming.

A beautifully stunning building with an atmospheric interior which exudes the characters of the people who once resided here, particularly Anne Lister. Original furniture and other items which are rare are shown in their own setting. Views across the Shibden estate that Anne Lister help create are beautiful. History seeps through every part of Shibden Hall. Highly recommend a visit especially all Anne Lister aficionados.

Really enjoyed our visit to Shibden Hall. We came across it by chance when googling somewhere different to visit. The hall itself isn’t big but there lots of interesting things to see.The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are obviously passionate about the building and it’s history and are happy to chat. The grounds and the park are also an added bonus with lots to do with young children. Would love to visit spring/summer when more flowers are in bloom.
