Nostell, Wakefield, West Yorkshire

Nostell is a Palladian treasure house, showcasing one of the finest collections of Chippendale furniture in the country.

Designed to impress, the decorative interiors are filled with furniture, paintings and significant handcrafted collection pieces, including one of the first longcase clocks made by John Harrison. 2017 marks the 300th birthday of this special clock and to celebrate, Nostell is hosting a contemporary art installation curated by world renowned artist Luke Jerram. From 25 July –9 July, discover ‘Harrison’s Garden’, a display of 2,000 ticking clocks decorating the ground floor of the house, which is set to be a spectacle for the eyes and ears. You can also join in talks and events throughout the year to celebrate John Harrison and his clockwork inventions. Outdoors, the house is surrounded by acres of parkland and gardens – take time to meander along lakeside and woodland paths and don’t miss the Kitchen Garden. Explore the parkland on two wheels on our new cycle trails, opening spring 2017.
