Newstead Abbey

A beautiful historic house set in a glorious landscape of gardens and parkland within the heart of Nottinghamshire. Founded as a monastic house in the late 12th century, Newstead was home to the poet Lord Byron between 1808 - 1814. Inside the Abbey there is much to explore including Victorian room settings, and the poets private apartments.

The gardens and parkland at Newstead Abbey cover more than 300 acres with paths that meander past lakes, ponds and waterfalls.  The formal gardens are the perfect place to relax and offer something in all seasons from the bright colours of the rhododendrons in late spring to the Japanese maples in autumn.

The Abbey hosts a variety of special events and temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

You can now enjoy a short stay in our very own Gardener's Cottage, in the heart of the Abbey grounds.

Accessibility:

Wheelchair users and their accompanying carers are therefore entitled to tickets priced at the concessionary rate. Some external paths and walkways have deep gravel surfaces which may make wheelchair manoeuvres difficult.

The café is accessible for wheelchair users.
