Get the most out of your day at East Riddlesden Hall

Father and Daughter strolling in the garden East Riddlesden Hall

Hundreds of years ago this West Yorkshire manor was a family home. This hidden gem was saved from demolition in 1934 by the Brigg brothers of Keighley. It now offers a friendly Yorkshire welcome to all who pass through its 400 year old doors.

The 17th century house and its history continue to surprise us as we unravel its stories. Come and see for yourself why it was worth saving - you might leave with more questions than answers.

It's thanks to your visits that we can protect beautiful places like East Riddlesden Hall. Thank you for your support.
