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.
Surrounded by parkland, with riverside and woodland walks on all sides, Beningbrough has been shaped for more than 300 years by the people who lived here.
The architecture, intricate panelling and furnished ground-floor rooms tell the story of a grand country house, and the spacious and light-filled Saloon Galleries display changing exhibitions of contemporary and historic art. New for 2020 see the Arts Council Collection exhibition – In the Moment: The Art of Wellbeing. The gardens are experiencing a renaissance. New planting schemes and garden rooms, designed by award-winning designer Andy Sturgeon, enhance the herbaceous borders, walled and American gardens and during 2020 a large Mediterranean Garden is under development.
