Oakwell Hall and Country Park

This Elizabethan manor hall is furnished as a family home of the 1690s, portraying life in a busy household of the time.

Charlotte Brontë was so inspired by Oakwell Hall that she featured it as Fieldhead in her classic novel Shirley. The glorious period gardens have been painstakingly restored and are well worth a visit, along with over 100 acres of Green Flag award-winning country park which includes a visitor centre, gift shop, café, nature trail, picnic sites, play area and countryside centre.
