A step away from the everyday

Imagine stepping 400 years back in time into the home of a 17th-century cloth merchant. See the changes that he made and discover why these were sadly never completed.

Take a step away from the hectic everyday and experience the tranquillity that is East Riddlesden Hall. In contrast to the atmospheric exterior, this friendly house is brought to life through stories told by room guide volunteers.

The house is home to a wonderful array of seventeenth century needlework and original exquisite plasterwork ceilings created by local craftsmen.

The intimate gardens, with an ever-changing palette of colour, offer a peaceful space to relax and unwind in. Children can let off steam in the natural play areas and get creative in the mud pie kitchen. The hobbit house is waiting to be discovered and there's no better place to spot wildlife than at the bird hide.

East Riddlesden Hall is the perfect place to spend a morning or afternoon.

The Discovery Garden will have the kids looking for bugs, balancing on logs and hiding in the Hobbit House.  The bird hide is the perfect place to spy on local wildlife, and the mud pie kitchen is a great place to cook up a masterpiece. For those looking for a bit more adventure - the natural play area is the place to burn off some energy.
