Behind the scenes

Large mullioned windows, with light streaming through.

A gift with a difference – the chance to experience something unique.

The morning ritual of opening up the house.  Its business as usual for the team at East Riddlesden Hall, however, this experience will give you a true behind the scenes look at what opening up a 400 year old property entails.

You will be welcomed through the back door and then start the journey and learn why we choose to flood certain rooms with light and leave others cloaked in more subdued shades of darkness. Understand how the balance of conservation and visitor experience is consistently assessed.  This is a wonderful opportunity to view the house before it has fully woken up. 

Finish off by taking the opportunity to chat to our House Steward over tea or coffee and a Danish in our tearoom. A small gift for you to take home is also included in the price of £25. This a bookable event  9.30- 10.30am Wednesdays until the end of April.
