3 reviews of Temple Newsam in English
Temple Newsam is a lovely place to wander round, in summer when it's lovely and sunny, or in the autumn, when all the leaves change colour. It's also host to Race for Life each year, when thousands of lovely ladies adorned in pink run 5 or 10k for charity.
I only just found this out, but the grounds of the house were apparently landscaped by Capability Brown, and I find this interesting because I am a bit of a geek for good ol' Capability, who was also involved in the landscaping at Harewood House. He was a right dude. I'll never understand how he knew that sticking a tree in a certain place would make everything so much more beautiful, but it worked.
temple newsham is a big estate that is now open to the public , with guided tour of the big house, a working farm, playground & lots of land, ideal for visiting in the summer hols, also holds many music festivals including party in the park & opera in the park .
been loads of times, just for a picnic& to chill out , for party in the park & to the farm loads of times. also went there for the hot air balloon fair which was expensive but brilliant, especially at night when all the hot are balloons were lit up.
loads of buses to the estate although you do have a very long drive way to walk up if you get the bus but on a warm day its part of the fun.
