Often described as a jewel in Doncaster's crown, Cusworth Hall is a beautiful Grade I listed building set in acres of historic parkland.



The house was built between 1740 and 1744 for local land owner William Wrightson and was inhabited by his descendants until the 1950s.

Recent refurbishments have transformed the Hall into Heritage Doncaster's social history museum and restored it to its former glory, revealing hidden secrets and beauty.

Today, visitors can step inside the Great Kitchen where many feasts were prepared and view the stunning paintings on the ceiling of the chapel. From setting up home to working and socialising, the museum collections reflect the daily lives of people in Doncaster from the 18th century to the present day.

The historic parkland surrounding Cusworth Hall is open to the public every day of the year. It's the perfect location for picnics, walks with the dog, or family days out. Children's play areas and a playing field are also located within the Park and the woodland areas and lakes are home to water voles, kingfishers and many other species. A variety of walking trails are available from the Hall reception.

Situated in Cusworth Hall's former stable and coach house, Butlers Tea Room and Bistro serves homemade meals and snacks and a variety of hot and cold drinks. The tearoom is open from 10am to 4pm every day and opens as a bistro on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The newly opened Old Brewhouse is a cosy microbrewery and bar built into the original brewhouse which served the Wrightson family for centuries. Offering a range of beers brewed within the Hall grounds and a host of craft beers, the Old Brewhouse is the perfect place to end your visit to Cusworth Hall & Park.

Cusworth Hall is located two miles north of Doncaster and is signposted from the A1 and A638.
