Overview

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.

Corporate events

We can accommodate conferences with up to 100 delegates.

They can be received in the Hall and seated in the Gallery. Refreshments and food can be served in the Hall. The Gallery is suitable for AV presentations and enjoys good natural light. Seating can be arranged in either boardroom, cabaret or theatre-style.

Several rooms are available for meetings:

  • The Gallery suits large meetings of up to 50 at one table, but can serve equally well for smaller gatherings
  • The North Room is a large drawing room, which might be what you want for more informal discussions, beside an open fire
  • The East Room is usually used as a dining room, but will equally well serve as a meeting room for up to 12
  • The Library is comfortable and can be a useful ante-room or breakout room.

We have relationships with a number of professional caterers to give you a choice of style and cuisine.

  • In the Gallery we can seat 80 people at a single table, or 100 at round tables of 10, still leaving enough room for after-dinner entertainers to circulate amongst the diners.
  • The East Room seats 12 comfortably, for a more intimate setting.
  • The Hall makes an impressive reception room.
  • The North Room is perfect for aperitifs or for coffee and after-dinner drinks.

Facilities

  • Plentiful parking
