Experience this house


A Palladian mansion circa 1760 by John Carr of York and restored by Francis Johnson in 1962-3 for the Duke of Norfolk. Tour includes principal reception rooms and the nearby Chapel of Saints Mary and Everilda, circa 1840, a large and impressive Romanesque building with coffered ceiling and life-size statues of the apostles and Holy Family.

Everingham Park is of particular historical significance as it retains landscape features of the medieval deer park and three periods of landscape design in the 18th and early-19th centuries. The celebrated gardener Thomas Knowlton from nearby Londesborough was the main adviser for the work carried out in the 1730s-40s. There is no information on who was responsible for the landscaping in the 1760s and later 18th century. The little-known J.N. Sleed of Kensington was employed for the improvements in the 1820s.
