Temple Newsam is a magnificent Tudor-Jacobean mansion set in 1500 acres of parkland, woodland and farmland landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown.

The house and estate are owned by Leeds City Council and open to the public. The estate is made up of large woodland, (the second largest part of the Forest of Leeds) many areas of which join onto the surrounding estates of Leeds. There are facilities for sports including football, golf, running, cycling, horse-riding and orienteering. There is also a children’s play park. The local football team, Colton Juniors, play on the football pitches surrounding the house.
