Brodsworth Hall, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire
BRODSWORTH HALLOne of the most complete surviving examples of a Victorian Country House in England, time has almost stood still for Brodsworth since the 1860's. The Hall still has original furnishings, faded opulence, servants wing and restored victorian gardens.
There are over 30 rooms to view ranging from the grandeur of the reception rooms to the servants wing with its big range from the era of Mrs Beeton. The House sits within beautiful Victorian period gardens which are used for special events through out the summer.
Brodsworth Fulfilled the role as a grand residence for its owner Charles Thellusson. After the First World War spiraling costs made certain that parts of the House were closed down.
When English Heritage took over the Hall the gardens were overgrown, their policy was to preserve the Grandeur of this fading Victorian House so that when visitors now come to the Hall they literally step back in time.
DirectionsJust off Junction 37 of the A1, or signposted and situated on the main road in Brodsworth (4 miles north of Doncaster).

Frank Ellis from Northern Ireland: Having been brought up in Doncaster(40 years) my 1st visit to Brodsworth Hall was in August 2006, now i know what i have missed all those years, I went there with my new partner, my son and his 3yr old son, What a fantastic time we had (even the wee boy wasn't bored due there being lots for him to do, even inside the house there are rooms for the kids (FANTASTIC) the only thing that spoilt the visit was us having to leave.
Mark Naylor from Brodsworth Hall: Ken Burwell - Derek Upex is still with us at the hall!
Margaret Aspinall - Yes! We have lots of snowdrops. There should be 1000's of them come February, keep a look out in the press for opening details.
Mr. Ken Burwell from Scarborough: A few years ago I visited Brodsworth Hall and met one of your guides, Derick Upex, who I knew from from way back in the 1920's, if He is still around would you ask him to get in touch.
