Lotherton Hall, Leeds, West Yorkshire
Lotherton is a beautiful Edwardian country estate, historic hall & museum, and Wildlife World Zoo.
In 2023 the museum will host a new exhibition, Cotton Connections: From India to the High Street. Covering 300 years of cotton’s role in fashion, identity, trade, and the environment, the exhibition encourages visitors to consider what cotton means to us today.
The huge grounds, gardens and parks provide plenty of outdoor space and visitors can watch the majestic deer from the hide. See lots of different species from around the world in Wildlife World, including Humboldt penguins.
