Beningbrough Hall

Tucked away in the rural outskirts of York is this Georgian delight of Beningbrough Hall. This is a wonderful day out for history buffs of all ages, with the house, its gardens and trails on offer.

Sir Ralph Bourchier constructed the manor in 1556. During its time, the building has been home to an array of events, including occupation by the Royal Air Force in WWII!

Nowadays, you can wander through the hall’s dazzling gardens, with six special areas available. A highlight is the Pergola, where you can spot a range of fauna growing on oak beams. The walled garden is also gorgeous, with a greenhouse and pear arch on display.

Beningbrough Hall is home to a wilderness play area. Here, the little ones can play to their heart’s content, with a Wendy house and pyramid tower on offer.

Canine companions are also welcome here, and you can take them around the eight-acre gardens. Afterwards, you can stop in the Brewhouse restaurant for an alfresco meal.

Beningbrough Hall Walk

The Beningbrough Hall Walk is a must for anyone wanting to explore the estate. This circular walk starts at the hall’s car park and takes you along a way-marked path.

Follow the path with the hall’s farm shop to your right, before reaching a wooded path. Soak up the sights of the woods and Beningbrough Farm before reaching the river.

Here, you can soak up those scenic vistas along the river bank, where several picnic areas await. Keep following the circular loop to reach the hall again.

A memorable day with all the family awaits at this estate…
