Newby Hall & Gardens

The House

One of Britain’s finest Adam Houses Newby Hall, the family home of Mr & Mrs Richard Compton, is one of England’s renowned Adam houses and an exceptional example of 18th century interior decoration. Built in the 1690s by Sir Christopher Wren the house was later enlarged and adapted by John Carr and subsequently Robert Adam.

The House is now open to visitors by booking a guided tour, the hour long house tours take you around the ground floor and first floor rooms. Our knowledgeable guides welcome any questions about the house and its history.

The Gardens

Newby’s award winning gardens, mostly created in the early 1920s, have evolved over the years making a major contribution to 20th century gardening.

Adventure Playground

Newby’s exciting Adventure Garden has been thoughtfully and safely designed for children of all ages – from swings for toddlers through to climbing frames and bridges, an aerial slide and pedalo boats for the older children. The ‘Tarantella’ dancing water play area by William Pye is now OPEN!. Take a truly enchanting ride on the miniature train for a small extra cost.
