We invite you to enjoy the hidden gem of Nostell Priory and Parkland.

Wonder at our grand architecture and interiors. Wander in our beautiful gardens and tranquil parkland. Have fun in our exciting adventure playground. The Gardens come to life from March onwards with a lovely show of spring flowers. Tree-lined rhododendron walks wind around two lakes, leading to the eighteenth century menagerie garden. In midsummer the scented Rose Garden comes into bloom with a variety of beautiful specimen roses, which you can take a closer look at in the Rose Theatre.

Almost 300 years old, Nostell Priory is a treasure chest of history, stories and beautiful collections. Built by James Paine and Robert Adam, the fourteen state rooms are lavishly decorated with delicate hand painted Chinese wall papers, fine porcelain and masterpieces. Furnished by the master cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale, Nostell Priory is home to the finest examples of his craftsmanship in the world. The ground floor shows the working rooms of the house, providing a glimpse into the worlds of people who lived here, above and below stairs. The Parkland is free and open all year round. Starting with the gentle slopes of the vista, it includes lakeside, woodlands and open meadows. Work continues on The Parkland Conservation Project to create a safe habitat where birds, wildlife and native meadow flowers can live and flourish.
