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.
Cliffe Castle was originally the home of Victorian millionaire and textile manufacturer, Henry Isaac Butterfield. Completed in the 1880`s the building was funded by the Butterfield family’s industrial empire which included wool textile mills and a shipping business that took British goods to Europe, America and China. The completed house was a showpiece of international art and French decoration. It was the scene of many glittering social events. Butterfield family connections included the Roosevelt’s of America and members of the court of Napoleon III. In the 1950`s the Castle was bought by Sir Bracewell Smith, a local man who became Lord Mayor of London. Sir Bracewell used architect Sir Albert Richardson to turn Cliffe Castle’s gardens into a grand public park and remodelled the Castle to be a free museum for the people of the district. In recent years Cliffe Castle has undergone a major restoration. Visitors can see sparkling Victorian rooms and furniture, paintings, and decorative art. Special galleries deal with natural history, archaeology and social history, all of which can be seen on your visit along with the internationally important display of stained glass by Morris and Co. The Castle also hosts changing exhibitions from our collections and the community.Family areas ensure that there is something for all ages.
