We were stuck between going to Sizergh Castle or Levens Hall and decided to visit the latter as it opened earlier. I wish I had chosen the former as Levens Hall was very expensive at £11.50 for an adult. My partner and I both work in museums and visit a lot of historical attractions and we both thought that Levens Hall was fairly mediocre: the house was quite interesting but there is a real lack of information about its history, or the history of the family, instead it is mostly given over to the Napoleonic artefacts that the family had acquired. In all, the information inside the house was fairly amateurish. The gardens had some pretty striking topiary, but were also quite average apart from that. Overall for that sort of price you expect a top-notch historic house and a really good visitor experience (like excellent information, free guided tours, etc.). Unfortunately this wasn't the case. I understand that these places need money for their upkeep, but in my mind Levens Hall was worth about half as much as they were charging, in comparison to similar attractions.
