Attraction Information:
Built under the guidance of Sir Christopher Wren in 17 Century, the superb contents of the house, collected by William Weddell, ancestor of the Compton family, include the Gobelins Tapestry Room, a renowned gallery of classical statuary and some of Chippendale's finest furniture.

25 acres of award-winning Gardens are full of rare and beautiful plants. Newby's magnificent double herbaceous borders form the main axis; off this central walk are formal compartmented gardens such as Sylvia's Garden, a species Rose Garden, Water Garden and even a Tropical Garden - truly "A Garden for All Seasons". The National Collection of CORNUS is also held at Newby.
Newby's exciting Adventure Garden for Children has been thoughtfully and safely designed for children of all ages - from the interactive waterplay area, sandpit and swings for toddlers through to climbing frames and bridges, an aerial slide and pedalo boats for the older children. And of course, Newby's famous Miniature Railway is for children and adults alike! Other attractions include the Sculpture Park, Woodland Discovery Walk, Shop and Plant Centre, Licensed Garden Restaurant and Picnic Area.
