About

Inside the Italian-inspired house the grand rooms are a perfect backdrop for the rich collection of portraits from the National Portrait Gallery. Find out about the families and other people who have lived here including RAF aircrews and how they have all left their mark on the 300 year history of Beningbrough. In 2019 the Saloon Galleries will feature more than twenty portraits and sculptures in a new exhibition: Yorkshire! Achievement, Grit and Controversy.

Relax on the sunny restaurant terrace sampling food including the harvest from the walled garden or stroll among glorious borders with over 8 acres to explore. The year starts with the arrival of a carpet of colour along the ha-ha walk with the thousands of spring bulbs planted in 2016, quickly followed by blossom from the fruit trees and stunning tulips among the borders and west formal. Take a seat in the recently installed Pergola complete with white wisteria. Come high summer, the borders are bursting with colour right into autumn with dahlias looking striking through to the first frosts.

The wilderness play area and interactive galleries are popular with families, whatever the weather. There's a packed programme of events in the school holidays and during any visit your little ones can grab a bike or trike to venture around the gardens or pick up an explorer backpack from the hall to help them on their way.

The Walled Garden restaurant and the Brew House (open weekends and school holidays) offer a range of hot, home-cooked meals, light lunches, snacks and refreshments.
