One of Britain's great country houses, this huge Elizabethan and Jacobean building contains impressive collections of furniture, paintings, and ceramics belonging to the city of Leeds. As the birthplace of Lord Darnley (1545–67), the doomed husband of Mary, Queen of Scots, it's rich in historical significance. Surrounding the house are 1,500 acres of parkland, farmland, lakes, and gardens, along with miles of woodland walks. The park and gardens were created by noted
18th-century landscape designer Capability Brown. Temple Newsam is 4 miles east of Leeds on A63; Buses 19, 40, and 163 leave from Leeds Central Bus Station every 30 minutes and stop at the Lidl Supermarket, a 25-minute walk from the house.
