Visits 20 September 2022 Wentworth Woodhouse Known as Yorkshire’s Hidden Gem, this Jacobean mansion was built in 1725. It is one of the largest stately houses in Europe with the longest continuous façade in the country. Once the home of the Fitzwilliam family, it boasts more than 300 rooms together with 50 acres of gardens with follies, monuments and other hidden delights. The house has had a chequered history, having been home to influential politicians including a Prime Minister before falling into disrepair in the 20th century, during which time open cast mining was carried out to within 100 feet of the building! On our tour we will learn about Wentworth Woodhouse’s extraordinary history as we journey through the formal state rooms and see the splendour of the house which is still intact despite having been closed to the public for 60 years.
