Temple Newsam is a Tudor/Jacobean house in Leeds with grounds landscaped by the famous Capability Brown.
It is often described "the Hampton Court of the North" for its red brick work and stately design.
The house has recently undergone substantial restoration to its exterior. There is an established programme of restoring rooms back to known previous configurations, reversing the numerous intrusive installations and modifications that took place during the building's "art museum" phase. There are substantial holdings of fine and decorative art which are Designated by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) as being of national significance.
The estate is made up of a large woodland area and also Home Fram w working farm containing many rare breeds of cattle, sheep and goats.
Temple Newsam is steeped in a rich history from its royal links to the lives of the ordinary people who lived and worked on the Estate. On our visit we will bring these stories to life.
There will also be chance for refreshments in the Courtyard Tea Rooms before we leave and to visit the shop stocking many local products.
Temple Newsam is not open all year around, but let us know when you want to visit and we will check out the opening availability.
