Award Winning Gardens & Lakeland Motor Museum

The Hall, Gardens and Lakeland Motor Museum comprise of three spectacular attractions in one perfect setting. But that is not all. Holker Hall also boasts a delightful Cumbrian Café. At The Courtyard Café linger over morning coffee and read the wide selection of dailies and broadsheets, enjoy tea after a restful and entrancing day or partake of dinner on those special evenings when we are open for events. The Cavendish and Burlington rooms, within the Café, can be hired for private functions as well as cater for weddings and special events. In addition, there is a marvellous design led and unique Gift Shop with many items personally selected by Lady Cavendish and Food at Holker Hall, a distinctly Cumbrian entity offering a range of Estate and bespoke produce, sure to tempt all tastes.

In 2003 Holker Hall was awarded the Cumbria Family Attraction of the Year, by the Good Britain Guide as well as the Horticultural Award by JPC Publishing. Visitors and their enjoyment of Holker Hall are very important to us. We strive to provide a well-rounded experience for all visitors. There is a site guide available to all upon entrance.

The immaculately kept Gardens (25 acres in all) are part woodland, part formal and essentially Victorian in character, though never heavy or oppressive. The 200-acre 'natural' parkland is in fact the result of the late 18th century planting of Lord George Cavendish. In the early 19th century several new features were added: an arboretum, a conservatory, balustraded terraces by the House, and a large walled kitchen garden.

The Lakeland Motor Museum, winner of Cumbria Tourist Board's Attraction of the Year, and the English Tourism Council's Best Small Visitor Attraction, houses an extensive and fascinating collection extending to some 20,000 exhibits, including cars, motorcycles, tractors, bicycles, pedal cars and engines plus perhaps the largest display of automobilia on public display within the UK - mascots, badges, advertising posters, petrol pumps, globes, enamel signs, pottery and models - pure nostalgia, certain to provide a thoroughly enjoyable 'motoring memories' experience.
