The Hall with it all

Constable Burton Hall is a handsome Palladian villa standing at the entrance to Wensleydale, North Yorkshire. Designed by the celebrated architect John Carr for Sir Marmaduke Wyvill, and completed in 1768, it is widely recognised as one of the finest medium-sized English houses built in the Palladian style.

The Hall stands in extensive woodland and formal gardens which are open to the public from mid-March to mid-September. Stunning seasonal displays of snowdrops and daffodils carpet the woodland walks and garden trails, making it an absolute must for garden and nature lovers alike.

Stunning Medieval Castle

Bolton Castle provides a huge range of exciting things to do in Castle Bolton, just up the road from Leyburn. From family days out to educational trips and historic tours you will find a raft of sights, sounds and smells which bring the castle to life and make for a truly memorable trip.

Now one of the country's best preserved medieval castles, Bolton was originally built, by Sir Richard Le Scrope, to rival the finest and most luxurious homes in the land. Completed in 1399, its scars bear testament to over 600 years of fascinating history including involvement in the Pilgrimage of Grace, Mary Queen of Scot's imprisonment and a Civil War siege.
