Attraction

Overview & description

As East Yorkshire’s best kept secret this truly hidden gem nestled in over 300 acres of Historic Grade II* listed parkland offers visitors unrivalled access to more than 30 rooms of faded splendour that are filled with fine furniture, paintings and sculpture. Discover the extraordinary 18th Century ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ and uncover the fascinating characters from the Constable family whose home it has been for over 700 years.

There is so much for visitors to enjoy and discover. Explore the historic grounds designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown with their woodland and parkland walks; follow the sculpture and wildlife trails or relax and find your favourite spot to picnic in this glorious setting. Say hello to the Jacob Sheep and play giant outdoor games in front of the Orangery. For the more energetic, why not take advantage of our free to use Parkland Experience Pack (complete with bug collector, magnifying glass, binoculars and orienteering map) and look for the numerous birds, animals and creepy-crawly ‘mini-beasts’ that inhabit the park.

The Stable Block is now restored thanks to the support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is fully open with new visitor facilities, interactive displays, exhibitions and events that tell the story of stable life in past times.

Visit the stable lad’s bedchamber, blacksmith’s shop, tack rooms and the restored workings of the 18th Century stable clock.

Visitors will also discover the Burton Constable Whale a 60 foot skeleton of a Sperm whale that was stranded on the coast nearby in 1825 and is featured in the famous novel Moby Dick, now restored and lurking in the Great Barn!

Take a welcome break in the Stables Tearoom for morning coffee and cake or refuel the family at lunchtime with our delicious selection of homemade food. For that ideal souvenir of your visit, take a look around our small but perfectly formed gift shop. Our four-legged friends are not forgotten at Burton Constable either, they are welcome on lead in the grounds and within our dedicated Doggy Dining Room.

Whatever you decide, every day is a great day out at Burton Constable for all the family!
