Temple Newsam Leeds City Council
Temple Newsam (LS15 0AE) is a large Jacobean Tudor Mansion. On the south eastern outskirts of Leeds the site is easily accessed from the M1 motorway. There are a wide variety of facilities situated in the 1500 acre grounds. Explore the park and gardens of Temple Newsam to discover a stunning 18th century landscape and intimate formal gardens full of scent and colour. The open grassland, woodlands, views and vistas are much admired as they were designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown for the 9th Viscount Irwin in the 1760’s. Although Brown’s plan was not fully followed his concept of a serene picturesque landscape is still seen. Four Trampers are available for visitors to use around the grounds. Telephone to pre-book 0113 336 7560 or EMail (Estate Office).
