Newby Hall and Gardens
North Yorkshire, HG4 5AE
Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, with some of Britain's finest Robert Adam interiors, Newby Hall is home to a wonderful collection of Chippendale furniture, Gobelins tapestries and classical statuary.
Its 25 acres of glorious award-winning gardens are full of rare and beautiful plants, including the National Collection of Cornus, or Dogwoods.
Newby Hall's Statue Gallery is home to one of the finest private collections of Roman statuary in Britain, consisting mainly of pieces from the first and second centuries. The Gobelins tapestries in the Tapestry Room are the only complete surviving set remaining in the setting for which it was made. Other highlights of the permanent collection include tables and chairs by Thomas Chippendale and Annibale Carracci's painting St Margaret.
