About Brodsworth Hall and Gardens

The best way to experience Brodsworth Hall and Gardens is to join one of its guided tours that wander through the grounds and rooms, some left as the last resident, Sylvia Grant-Denton had them, showing the strain such a vast house has even on the most affluent. While some of the rooms are clearly in decline, others have been beautifully restored to the opulent grandeur that Victorian visitors would have enjoyed. 

Take your time to stroll around the Billiard Room, where the wealthiest of gentlemen would have passed their time in the days of the Thellusson family, who lived in the house after it was built in the 1860s. Interestingly the mummified hooves of the 1855 Doncaster Cup winner still linger in the room.

Next up is a trip outside to take in the Victorian splendour of the miniature gardens, adorned with colourful paintings and seasonal displays. Then walk your way around the statues in the grounds and stop for a moment’s rest in the beautiful fern grotto or wild rose dell.

A day of grandeur is the perfect excuse to take a seat in the Victorian kitchen tearoom and spoil yourself with some local Yorkshire fare, or lay out a blanket in the gardens and tuck into your own picnic.
