Leeds-List: The Best & Most Insightful Guide to Leeds

Newby Hall

Just 40 minutes from Leeds, Newby Hall is a must-visit. This beautiful stately home is perfect for family days out. It's got an adventure playground, a miniature railway and a riverboat, not to mention a packed calendar of events. Plan your visit.

Adventure is most certainly on the cards because we’re giving away an unforgettable day out for all the family at Newby Hall.

Nestled just outside Ripon, just 40 minutes drive from Leeds, Newby Hall is the ultimate family day out. This stunning stately home is one of Britain’s finest Adam Houses and it’s a sight to be seen. You’ll be wowed by the incredible architecture, dazzled by the lavish 18th-century interiors and bowled over by the beautifully landscaped gardens – but that’s nothing in comparison to the raptures the kids will be in because it’s a veritable playground for the little ones.

This is a family day out you’ll never forget

If you’re our lucky winner, you’re in for a real treat because we’re giving you the whole kit and caboodle. You’ll get a family ticket for two adults and three kids, so you can roam the halls, run amok in the gardens and conquer every inch of the adventure playground. But that’s not all. Want a ride on the miniature railway? You got it. Fancy a riverboat trip? No problem. Got hungry bellies to feed? We’re throwing in lunch for you and the little ones worth up to £100. It’s a ready-made day out at one of Yorkshire’s finest attractions and you can win it all.

Imagine the fun you’ll have! The house is full of treasures, and we’re not just talking about the Chippendale furniture. The kids will love their collection of dollhouses, it’s one of the best in the world, and if you head out to the garden today, you’re in for a big surprise because The Bear House is full of famous teddies. This is the history of play, but why relegate it to the past when there’s so much fun to be had in the grounds?

The gardens are perfect for outdoor adventurers. You can explore the jungles of the Tropical Garden, wander through the lush greenery of the Woodland Garden or race up the Herbaceous Border towards the house. Make sure you stop by the adventure playground. With slides, climbing frames and even pedalos, there’s something for little ones of every age. And if that’s not enough to send the kids wild, jump onboard the minature railway for a ride around the gardens before you hop onto The Yoredale riverboat for a 25-minute river cruise.

It’s hungry work, so you’ll also get lunch on your visit. Everything’s deliciously seasonal at Newby Hall and the menu changes all the time, but you could be tucking into anything from chicken breasts stuffed with sun-blushed feta and wrapped in parma ham to chargrilled aubergine, courgette and red pepper lasagne. Leave space for dessert – who could resist their Yorkshire Mess of Summer Berries?
