East Riddlesden Hall

Hundreds of years ago this West Yorkshire manor was a thriving farming estate. Today East Riddlesden Hall makes a great day out for the whole family. You can make mud pies, build a den, weave with natural materials, play traditional games on the lawn and lots more. There’s over 50 acres of space waiting to be explored.

Various activities take place throughout the year. Please see the What’s On Page for full details. Don’t forget that admission for under 5s is FREE.

Natural play area

The play area with its slide, swings and a wooden climbing frame, is a great place for little ones to burn off some energy on. There are plenty of benches for parents to relax on with a hot drink from the tea-room.

Discovery garden

Look out for bugs and squirrels in this part of the garden. There’s a Hobbit House for hiding in, a log for balancing on, a new natural weaving frame, a den building area and the best mud pie kitchen in the National Trust.

Bird hide

The bird hide provides a chance to spy on local wildlife. Use the spotter sheets to see how many different types of hungry birds are joining us today. Pick up a wax crayon and create your own bird rubbing.

Lower fields

There’s a great space on the lower field for flying a kite or running around with a football. If you’d like to stretch your legs a little longer, the far fields are great places to spot some wildlife. The willow tunnel is a great hiding place and leafy den, and there are picnic benches down there too. The tea-room and toilets are within easy reach at the top of the secret steps.

Hands on in the house

As well as exploring the outdoors, there’s a historic house waiting to be discovered too. Inside you can have a go at playing some of the games, touch and smell the food and lots of other hand-on activities that will give you a sense of living here.
