Spend a pleasant afternoon wandering through the wonderful gardens full of interesting topiary, and look round the interesting hall itself.

The intricate heavily ornate dark wood carving and the stunning Cordoba finely worked leather wall coverings that are sumptuous.

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Lovely topiary and a great sense of history. Have visited Levens Hall often and during each season - I think it most beautiful when covered in snow which really accents the shapes of the hedges.
