Newby Hall & Gardens offers a great family day out with a wide range of attractions to keep everyone entertained. The Hall is home to 25 acres of award-winning gardens including the excellent children’s Adventure Garden.
Designed by Christopher Wren, Newby Hall was built between 1691-1695. The Hall is home to some of Britain’s finest Robert Adam interiors. Peter Aram was commissioned as head gardener to lay out formal gardens and avenues in keeping with the period. Very little of Aram’s layout for Newby remains today, with the Lime Avenue to the far west being the only area of this elaborate design remaining within the garden.
