Things to do at Nostell Priory and Parkland review

Nostell Priory and Parkland is a National Trust owned property near Wakefield in West Yorkshire. It was created by generations of the Winn family and still features many of their collected pieces of Chippendale furniture. The car park is quite a long walk from the house and the main entrance. You may also have to pay to park (please see entry price below).

We hadn’t heard of this house before we visited and we were very impressed. There is two floors of rooms to explore. The staff we came across were fantastic with my 6-year old involving him in activities and keeping him interested.

The parkland has walking, cycling and running paths. We picked up a map and followed a couple of walking routes. The map also has estimated times it would take to walk these paths which is useful for planning your visit.

There are gardens to see, an adventure playground including a great zip wire, swing and a few things to climb on. The main walking 2.5-mile route takes you around the two large lakes where you can also see an arch, Menagerie, pleasure grounds and a boathouse.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
