Nestled in Middlesbrough is the green oasis of Ormesby Hall, once home to the Pennyman family. This classic Georgian mansion is surrounded by 250 acres of parkland and farmland which offer year round seasonal walks with a colourful Victorian formal garden accompanying the mansion.

Uncover the family's stories from 'wicked' Sir James to Colonel Jim, survivor of the First World War, and the theatrical exploits of his wife Ruth. Then experience the life of a Victorian servant and explore the Laundry and Kitchen.

Ormesby Hall also has a yearly events programme and provides a unique venue for weddings and functions.
