“So much to see - beautiful”

Brodsworth Hall and Gardens
Ranked #6 of 52 things to do in Doncaster
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We visited Brodsworth in March and the gardens of course are not at their peak. As I walked around I imagined how they would be in the summer with all the flowers in bloom. The sunken garden is magical and we are planning another visit shortly on our way to friends in North Yorkshire.

The tea room is a welcome break and the food first class whether you partake in a full meal or cream tea, all very reasonably priced.

Went expecting to only spend about an hour there, but there was a lot more to see. The war time exhibition was very good and spread out over lots of rooms. It made the place seem less of a museum, more like it was lived in. You could visualise the soldiers working and living in the place.

Had a lovely day with my daughter at the house and gardens, It did take us back in time and and one of the good points was there was a volunteer in every room ready to give information regarding the house and the family. Have to say look out for one of the volunteers named Stephen Johnson/Jones in the kitchen, he was an absolute treasure to this place believe me..The cafe serves really good food especially the leek and potato soup, yum yum..We spent ages in the gardens just ambling round and on a warmer day would have spent a great deal longer, it really is a place to put on your to visit list. A place for every one.

I loved the history of the family. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The hall must have been a fantastic place to live. There is no tour guide but there are people available to answer questions in each of the rooms. On our visit the hall did not open until 1pm but we went around the gardens first. There is loads of reading material which is very informative and also push button commentaries. The hall was taken over by soldiers during the war and there are commentaries from the staff on what happened at that time. A great visit well recommended. There is a gift shop and tea room on site, these were both open before the hall.

I live very close to Brodsworth hall and I love it. The grounds are lovely and getting better all the time (the gardeners are working hard to bring this garden up to the standard it was in its heyday). The house is lovely and very interesting again much as it was when it was last lived in. The cafe serves really good food and you can take your food out into the courtyard to eat. Go to the summer concerts in the grounds and the fairytale garden in November they are fab.
