‘Burton Constable has been home to the Constable family for over 700 years and is one of the most fascinating English country houses to survive with its historic collections. The Elizabethan mansion is now a museum with over 30 rooms crammed with family treasures.
Surrounded by 330 acres of stunning historic Grade II* listed, Capability Brown parkland, it is the ideal place to while away the hours. Historic features including the dam-cum-bridge, slumbering 60ft sperm-whale and wonderful Georgian orangery are embedded amongst the idyllic outdoor walks and trails – perfect for your wellbeing and access to wildlife and nature.
Benefit from breath-taking behind the scenes tours, exciting exhibitions, and an array of events all year round!’
We spent several hours in this fascinating house and there was so much to see we couldn't take it all in. The visit is self-guided so you can spend your time on your personal interests - and skip anything that does not! - but we enjoyed it all. There are knowledgeable volunteers in all the rooms who were all very pleasant to chat to and gave us all the information we wanted.
I visited with my husband and our dog. We ate in the dog dining room which was spotlessly clean and welcoming. We enjoyed afternoon tea for two which was of excellent quality and value for money...our dog even joined in by having the sausage roll!. We then went round the old stables which was very interesting and had a lovely walk in the wonderful grounds. It was so refreshing not to be treated as a second class citizen just because we had a dog with us. Well done to Burton Constable Hall!
