Ushaw Historic House, Chapels & Gardens is an independent charity set in a majestic estate of 500 acres, hidden for 200 years in the heart of the Durham countryside. A unique heritage and visitor attraction, our glorious Georgian and Victorian Gothic architecture and stunning grounds make Ushaw the perfect place for families to explore and enjoy throughout the seasons.
Our 30 acres of gardens, parkland and woodland, tell Ushaw’s story perfectly. Once a community of faith, reinvented into one of Durham’s best visitor attractions. When the former College closed, its gardens fell wild and overgrown. After lying abandoned and unloved, volunteer gardeners and friends of Ushaw set about saving them.
Now fully restored, today they are still maintained by volunteers and our Head Gardener. Join us on a walking tour of the gardens to learn more about the past, present and future of our beautiful gardens!
Included with Friends of Ushaw membership.
