Gibside is a Georgian ‘grand design’ on a spectacular scale. The vision of coal baron George Bowes, the Palladian chapel is an architectural masterpiece, the stable block is a vibrant learning and discovery centre, and the once grand hall is now a dramatic shell. Gibside is also a haven for wildlife with red kites often circling in the skies above.
After centuries of decline, we’re restoring Gibside for people and nature. Come for events every weekend, escape along the avenue for miles of tranquil walks and picnic spots or enjoy family fun at our adventure play area and woodland play trail.
Food also runs through Gibside’s veins, whether in our bustling walled garden, cafe, local farm shop or twice monthly farmers’ market.
