18th-century house with interactive galleries and National Portrait Gallery paintings
Each visit to Beningbrough is a friendly, relaxed and inspiring journey. There's so much to explore. Walk through pear arches and hidden gateways to labyrinth paths, grand Italianate borders and hidden woods.
Stepping inside the Great Hall, uncover scandalous stories behind National Portrait Gallery paintings and reveal your inner Georgian with costumes and virtual portraits. Or just bring a rug and enjoy a cream tea on the cherry tree lawn, watching clouds drift by.
From country lanes to violent skies
If walls had ears to listen and a tongue to speak, what tales would they repeat?
In 1941, Lady Chesterfield, former owner of Beningbrough Hall and Gardens, moved out of the Hall as it was requisitioned as a billet and mess for RAF Linton on Ouse bomber crew and later the Canadian Air Force. 70 years on from opening its doors as a billet to the Canadian Air Force, we remember some of the tales and histories of the men and women who stayed at Beningbrough during the Second World War in a new cross-site exhibition, trail and series of events throughout the year. There will be a new schools programme to complement the project. Plus we want to record your history from this time period; if you or a relative have a story to tell, maybe you lived locally and remember meeting the crewmen or served at Linton-on-Ouse, please get in touch and share your memories.
