Take a tour of the grand Burton Agnes Hall

Burton Agnes, East Riding of Yorkshire

Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home that has remained in the same family for over 400 years.

Once described as ‘the perfect English house’ and as one of England’s twenty finest houses alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House make this place not to be missed. Burton Agnes Hall is a magnificent example of Elizabethan architecture, built in 1598 by Sir Henry Griffith.

The Hall is filled with treasures collected and commissioned by the family over four centuries. The original Elizabethan carving and plasterwork still decorates many rooms, while there are some lovely examples of Georgian furniture and porcelain and many modern French and English paintings of the Impressionist Schools. Outside there is much to explore.

The old Elizabethan walled garden is an award-winning wonderland containing over four thousand different plants, a potager filled with herbs, fruit and vegetables, herbaceous borders, giant board games, a maze, a jungle garden and a national collection of campanulas. Finish the day in the delightful Courtyard Café.
