Travel just minutes from Leeds city centre to explore 500 years of history and 1500 acres of scenic parkland.
Temple Newsam is one of the finest historic houses in the region, with a rich history of links to royalty through plots and intrigue. Explore over 40 rooms of treasures, with Chippendale furniture, silver, ceramics, fine art, and wallpaper. Uncover the stories of the people who lived here, including the notorious Lord Darnley and how generations of one family developed the house over 300 years.
In 2019 we will host a brand new exhibition; Fantastical Beasts explores the weird and wonderful creatures of Temple Newsam, see how many you can spot as you wander through the rooms and take part in activities with a beastly twist!
Our award winning rare breed conservation farm is one of the best-loved family attractions in Leeds. Come face-to-face with a variety of farm animals and get hands on with the piglets, chickens and geese running free in the yard. Stroll along our historic cobbled yards, explore traditional buildings and experience the sights and sounds of recreated workshops – including the timber yard and sawmill.

Enjoy a picnic in the lakeside gardens, or the scent of roses in the romantic Georgian walled garden.
