Lots to explore
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 (subject to volunteer availability).
Enjoy the house from the outside
We know some of you like a more peaceful visit to the House so if you’re looking for a quieter day out, Fridays are normally best. Even on quieter days, House visits after 2.30pm are likely to be much quieter than when we first open each day. Whilst the house is busy, take a walk along the Debdon Burn and look up through the trees or gaze at its nooks and crannies from the Iron Bridge or look down on the chimneys from Crozier Drive. Check our opening times here.
Meet our conservation housekeepers
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.
Our slave girl heads to America
Our beloved Slave Girl sculpture has been shipped off to feature in an exhibition called Sculpture Victorious: Art in an Age of Invention at Yale Center of British Art, Connecticut, USA. She will be on display until November and then will travel to Tate Britain, London from late February to May 2015.
