Discover fantastic Derwent Valley views, miles of walks and wide open spaces while wildlife spotting or exploring elegant buildings and ruins.
Gibside is a Georgian 'grand design'; the vision of coal baron George Bowes and his daughter, ‘Unhappy Countess’ Mary Eleanor. Come see the latest progress as we restore Gibside for people and nature.
Get close to nature
The trees, meadows and ponds are a haven for wildlife, from red kites to roe deer. Take a closer look with the bird hide and wildlife cameras.
Bring history to life
The Palladian Chapel is an architectural masterpiece, the stables are a vibrant learning and discovery centre, and the once grand hall is now a dramatic shell
Events every weekend
Something for all the family: the events are inspired by Gibside’s wildlife, food and history, from school holiday fun to bushcraft, guided walks to outdoor music.
Walks come rain or shine
Bring your wellies and escape along the avenue for family adventures at the play areas, tranquil riverside or woodland wanders, and beautiful picnic spots.
Food glorious food
Visit the bustling walled garden and taste homemade treats in the tea rooms, local food shop or monthly farmers' markets.
