Lotherton Hall, Leeds, West Yorkshire

Enjoy a fantastic day out at a charming country estate.
Lotherton Hall, Leeds, West Yorkshire

The splendid Edwardian estate is a short drive from Leeds and boasts extensive grounds, beautiful gardens and a Red Deer Park.

Lotherton is the former home of the Gascoigne family who lived there from 1825 until 1968. The hall now tells the story of its former owners through furniture, paintings, silver and ceramics worthy of a national museum.

Outdoors there are the two adventure playgrounds, woodlands and orchard to explore. The conservation zoo Wildlife World houses a colony of penguins and brand new Nocturnal House which is home to amazing animals including a three-banded armadillo. An exciting programme of
events and activities run throughout the year and a membership package is available for regular visitors to get the best value across the year.
