Historic Site, next open Sat 9 Nov - Sun 22 Dec 2013, £5.70
East Riddlesden Hall offers visitors a taste of a typical West Yorkshire manor house. Going into the Hall feels like walking through someone’s home; it has a cosy lived-in feeling, and creates a relaxing atmosphere where visitors can feel at ease examining the exquisite embroideries and blackwork, oak furniture and pewter.
The Hall is valued for the sense of peace and tranquillity that is experienced on turning through the gate off the busy Bradford Road. The arresting first impression is of a silhouetted, blackened, stone, gabled house, viewed across the reflecting waters of the pond and framed by mature beech and sycamore trees. The impact is accentuated by the blank-eyed stare of the ruined Starkie Wing, which is aged by industrial grime. The large barns are reminders of the site’s former use as an agricultural estate covering 1,200 acres of Riddlesden.
This award winning attraction offers you a lot to discover and explore. We are more than a historic house and barn; we have an array of beautiful gardens surrounding the property, from a wild garden to formal gardens and herb border. From our car park you can explore our fields and our stunning Riverside Walk, a perfect place to stretch your legs or walk the dog. Our facilities for visitors include a playground for youngsters, a bird hide and apiary, and you can also indulge yourself in our gift shop and our newly refurbished Tearoom.
