Bramham Park was built in 1698 and its famous landscape laid out over the following 30 years by Robert Benson, 1st Lord Bingley.

After 300 years, which include the South Sea Bubble, the untimely death of the heir, dissipation by illegitimate children, crippling gambling debts, a devastating fire, the ravages of two World Wars and death duties, the same family still lives at Bramham and cares for its heritage.

Bramham Park represents an important stage in British architecture and garden design: the house is neither baroque nor typically palladian and the gardens are somewhere between the formal and the picturesque.

Bramham is a rare survivor of the period and we have tried to keep it as its creator, Robert Benson, intended it.

There is lots of space and it can be all yours to discover for the day. Please note, however, that we do not have any facilities to serve refreshments – please bring your own picnic to enjoy in the grounds!

Both house and landscape are open, by appointment, for most of the year, just ring us to arrange your visit.

Opening Times

The Gardens & Grounds are open most of the year, by appointment, on weekdays, between 9am and 4pm.

We are closed the last week of May, and the first two weeks of June due to Bramham International Horse Trials, and during August and most of September due to Leeds Festival. We are also closed weekends and bank holidays. (During some large events we may not be able to take bookings).

It is always best to give us a quick call before you set off on your journey to Bramham Park, just to check that we are open.
