Burton Constable Hall, Skirlaugh, East Yorkshire
One of England’s twenty finest alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.
East Yorkshire’s grandest stately home and a terrific family day out.
Burton Constable Hall & Grounds is East Yorkshire’s finest historic day out – there is so much to enjoy and discover for families of all ages!
This fascinating Elizabethan gem nestles in over 300 acres of natural parkland and offers visitors unrivalled access to 30 rooms of faded splendour that are filled with fine furniture, paintings and sculpture. Discover the extraordinary 18th century ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ and uncover the fascinating characters from the Constable family whose home it has been for the past 700 years.
Explore the historic parkland designed by ‘Capability’ Brown with our walks and nature trails or relax and find your favourite spot to picnic and play in this glorious setting.
Discover our restored Stable Block, with displays and exhibitions telling the story of stable life in past times and not forgetting ‘The Burton Constable Whale’ a 60 foot long skeleton of a Sperm Whale stranded on the coast nearby in 1825 now restored and lurking in the Great Barn!
Take a welcome break in The Stables Tea Room for morning coffees and cake or refuel the family at lunchtime with our delicious selection of homemade food. Then visit our small, but perfectly formed Gift Shop for that ideal souvenir to take home with you. Our four-legged friends are not forgotten at Burton Constable either, they are welcome on lead in the grounds and within our dedicated Doggy Dining Room.
Whatever you decide, every day is a great day out at Burton Constable for all the family!
