Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens, York, North Yorkshire
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.
In the garden, the award-winning designer Andy Sturgeon’s ha-ha walk and pergola contrast with the traditional herbaceous borders, sweeping lawns, walled and American gardens, offering year-round interest and colour. The walled garden restaurant serves up the day’s harvest through its seasonal menu. Head into the parkland for a longer walk, and for younger visitors the wilderness play area and den zone complete the day out.
Step inside and uncover the architecture of this grand hall. Created after John Bourchier’s Grand Tour and especially time spent in Italy. The detailing and craftmanship is even more evident since the installation of a new LED lighting scheme as part of recent work.
The ground floor historic rooms tell the story of a country house. Through the people of the estate and key collection items, find out about different periods of time and pockets of history and their influence on what you see today.
Don’t miss the second-hand book room in the library, take time out and browse the shelves.
A new art exhibition, Inspired by Italy can be found on the second floor Reddihough Galleries until 17 March 2024.
