Brodsworth Hall is unique - an unrivalled and memorable opportunity for your group to experience an English country house as it really was. Lavishly built and furnished by millionaires in the 1860s, Brodsworth was lived in by the same family for over 120 years, slowly declining during the 20th century as money and servants ebbed away. After the death of the last indomitable owner in 1988, the mansion was carefully ‘conserved as found’ by English Heritage. Other houses boast that they’re ‘frozen in time’: Brodsworth really is.


  • Explore the grand state rooms filled with statues. Marvel at ‘family clutter’ spanning from Victorian times until the late 1980s.
  • Discover decades of family life in all its grand, faded glory. See the servants’ spartan living conditions and venture behind the scenes into the rooms where they worked to keep the house running like clockwork.
  • Wander through Brodsworth’s 15 acres of beautifully restored gardens which are a delight whatever the season. They include colourfully planted formal designs, rose, alpine and woodland gardens.
  • Enjoy permanent displays about the house, family, servants and estate community and glean extra information from friendly local volunteer guides.

TOP TIP
Book a private tour outside normal opening hours and hear tales of life at the hall.

Conservation work will be taking place in some of our rooms in 2016. Please contact the property for more information.
