Fodor's Review

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, lakes, gardens, miles of woodland walks, and a farm, where kids can enjoy the new petting zoo. The park and gardens were created by noted 18th-century landscape designer Capability Brown. Temple Newsam is 4 miles east of Leeds on A63; Bus 10 runs directly from Leeds Central Bus station from Easter to mid-September.
