Nostell, Wakefield, West Yorkshire

Thomas Chippendale created a new world of interiors for Nostell – from a simple chopping block to complete rooms in the latest Chinese fashions of the time.

Visit in 2019 to learn more about Chippendale’s world, including an exhibition which reveals the fascinating story of the man behind the brand. Explore high end design, fashionable living and ambitious aristocrats through new interpretation and displays on the State Floor. Walk through the fragrant Kitchen Garden and meander along lakeside and woodland paths to spot seasonal wildlife. Let your kids loose in the outdoor play area and bring your bikes to ride through Nostell’s cycle-only woodland trail.
