Wentworth Castle Gardens, Barnsley, Yorkshire
Glorious gardens, woodland and parkland, created for the privileged few and preserved for everyone to enjoy.

South Yorkshire’s only grade I registered landscape has over 500 acres to explore. There are fascinating stories to uncover, plus an endless variety of gentle walking trails, picnic and hide and seek spots to keep the kids entertained.

This special place includes the fairy-tale-like “ancient ruins” of Stainborough Castle as well as many other follies and special monuments. There’s the Victorian conservatory, full of exotic plants, the maze-like Union Jack Garden, winding paths of the fernery, wilderness paths in the woodland and the Victorian flower garden. The parkland boasts views across Yorkshire’s countryside and is home to herds of deer.
