Glimpse a Victorian vision of life in a country house. Brodsworth Hall was built and the pleasure gardens laid out, in the 1860s, as an up-to-date new home for the Thellusson family and their servants. It survived with remarkably few changes until taken on by English Heritage in 1990. The gardens have been restored, and the faded and worn interiors gently conserved, telling the story of the changing fortunes of the people who lived and worked here. Wander around this beautiful Victorian country house, roam the gorgeous gardens, stop for tea in the tearoom, and discover the children's play area.
