Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens, York, North Yorkshire
Built in the 18th century, numerous occupants have changed the face of this Italian-style house and it has an intriguing story to tell.
Built in the 18th century, numerous occupants have changed the face of this Italian-style house.
From a wealthy teenager who built this mansion, its occupation by the RAF in WWII, to the re-invention as a country house gallery. In 2019, see ‘Yorkshire! Achievement, Grit and Controversy’, a new exhibition of portraits and sculptures in the Saloon Galleries looking at Yorkshire game changers, rebels, influencers, and the county’s reputation. In the gardens, mixed borders contrast with sweeping lawns and a working walled garden. Wander through the 300,000 bulbs as they appear each season along the ha-ha walk. Take a seat under the pergola – installed last spring as part of the long term vision for the garden by garden designer Andy Sturgeon.
