Thirsk Hall is a grade II* listed townhouse which was built in 1723 and extended by York architect John Carr in 1770. The house is unique in its setting, to the east of the house is the market town of Thirsk and to the west there are 20 acres of gardens, walled paddocks and a parkland. These gardens are now home to Thirsk Hall Sculpture Garden, which first opened in 2021.
The Sculpture Garden will be re-opening on 14 of May 2022 and will remain open all year round so visitors can enjoy the gardens and artwork in the winter months. In addition to the Sculpture Garden a brand new gallery space will also be opening this year.
The opening times are Wednesdays to Saturdays each week, 11am – 5pm.
Thirsk Hall is also an events venue that hosts the Thirsk Hall Festival, a 3-day festival of great music, stories and events, with the community at the heart. The owners of Thirsk Hall have joined forces with critically acclaimed composer and conductor Benjamin Ellin to curate an annual weekend of musical entertainment. As part of Thirsk Hall’s ongoing ambition to make Thirsk the cultural capital of the North, the festival celebrates the creativity of those within the region. The next festival is being held on the weekend of 19-21 of August 2022.
If you wanted to extend your visit to Thirsk the hall has a self-contained, self-catered two-bedroom flat (sleeping up to 4 guests) available for short term stays. Another option is Thirsk Hall Glamping Site which is due to open mid-2022.
