18th-century house with interactive galleries and National Portrait Gallery paintings

Beautiful gardens, parkland walks and an intriguing house to explore. Beningbrough is a great place to relax and be inspired all year round. Enjoy colourful Edwardian borders, working Victorian walled garden, labyrinth and family trails.

Meet the most powerful and influential people of the 18th century in our outstanding portrait collection. In an imaginative partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, paintings and sculptures are brought to life throughout historic rooms and hands-on galleries in the Italian-inspired house. Furniture and ceramics complement a grand interior, where the people in the portraits would feel at home - you may even meet a few.
