Burton Constable Hall & Grounds is East Yorkshire’s finest historic day out – there is so much to enjoy and discover for families of all ages!

This fascinating Elizabethan gem nestles in over 300 acres of natural parkland and offers visitors unrivalled access to 30 rooms of faded splendour that are filled with fine furniture, paintings and sculpture.

Discover the extraordinary 18th-century ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ and uncover the fascinating characters from the Constable family whose home it has been for the past 700 years.

Explore the historic parkland designed by ‘Capability’ Brown with our walks and nature trails or relax and find your favourite spot to picnic and play in this glorious setting.

Discover our restored Stable Block, with displays and exhibitions telling the story of stable life in past times and not forgetting ‘The Burton Constable Whale’ a 60 foot long skeleton of a Sperm Whale stranded on the coast nearby in 1825 now restored and lurking in the Great Barn!
