Step inside Temple Newsam for a historic house tour and be guided by one of our friendly and knowledgeable team members around our stunning mansion house in Leeds.

Explore the beautiful interiors and architecture of the house which was birthplace to Lord Darnley, the notorious husband of Mary Queen of Scots.

Experience the house as a working museum, with objects on the move as they are cleaned for conservation and different pieces made ready for display. Learn how we keep such a huge property spick and span, and marvel at the best collection of decorative arts outside of London’s V&A.

With over 500 years of history to uncover, and collections that include bespoke furniture, precious ceramics, textiles, silverware and some of the most impressive wallpaper you’ll ever see. Step back in time and discover fascinating facts about the past residents who lived and worked on the estate.

Our guides will ensure that your historic house tour is one to remember, with stories and behind-the-scenes opportunities. Each tour varies slightly depending on the conservation work happening in the house, so be prepared to see a different side to Temple Newsam!
