East Riddlesden HallBradford Royal, KeighleyHouse and Garden
Every time that you stand in the gardens of East Riddlesden you will experience something new. The pink cherry trees, clematis, borders, daffodils and soothing lavender beds all create a sense of tranquillity far removed from the bustle of modern life. This peace is very different from the Hall's tumultuous past, which includes tales of ghosts and dastardly deeds. Going into the Hall feels like walking through someone's home; it has a cosy lived-in feel, and creates a relaxing atmosphere where visitors can feel at ease examining the exquisite embroideries and blackwork, oak furniture and pewter.
