There are lots to see and do at Cragside House. Each Wednesday our volunteer cooks are in costume recreating authentic Victorian recipes in our magnificent kitchen for our Victorian Baking Days. On the same day you can also watch volunteers carry out conservation cleaning on items from the collection in the Gallery as well.
 

Enjoy the house from the outside

Talk a walk along the Debdon Burn and look up through the trees or gaze at its nooks and crannies from the Iron Bridge.  Look down on the chimneys from Crozier Drive.

Our collection

As the house grew, Armstrong’s collection grew with it. His enthusiasm for collecting included contemporary British art, furniture, ceramics & natural history as well as items of scientific curiosity and experimentation.

Ever wondered what our team love the most about Cragside?  Which is their favourite room in the House and what do they really get up to when the house is closed over winter?  We met Philip and Alex, our conservation housekeepers and found out what goes on behind the doors.
