A visit to Beningbrough offers more than meets the eye. In fact you can come face to face with the eyes of kings, queens and nobles as they gaze at you from over 100 portraits that on display, on loan from the National Portrait Gallery. 

 Uncover the stories of who once lived at Beningbrough, from the wealthy teenage who built the mansion as his own version of an Italian palace, to Lady Chesterfield who welcomed soldiers to use her home as a garrison during the Second World War. Today the Hall is relatively unfurnished in parts and is home to the national collection of 18th century portraits. On the top floor of the hall, visitors can create their own eighteenth century portrait in the Making Faces gallery and discover how regency artists sparked their creativity!

Surrounding the hall are acres of parkland for exploring and a beautiful walled garden. Stocked full of fruit and vegetables, produce is regularly harvested for use on the menu of the restaurant. For admission prices, opening times and a full list of events, call 01904 472027 or visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/beningbrough
