Cusworth Hall Museum

Explore architecture, heritage, and landscape history at Cusworth Hall. The beautiful Grade I Listed building set in acres of historic parkland offers spectacular views across the Borough.

Built between 1740-1744 for local land owner William Wrightson, Cusworth Hall was home to the Battie-Wrightson family for over 200 years.

Extensive refurbishments between 2002 and 2007 restored parts of the building to their former glory before the house opened as a social history museum.

Today, visitors can step inside the Great Kitchen where many feasts were prepared and view the stunning paintings on the ceiling of the chapel.

From setting up home to working and socialising, our collections reflect the daily lives of people in Doncaster from the 18th century to the present day.

A changing programme of temporary exhibitions also offer something new to discover, and guided tours of the Hall and Park are available for visiting groups from £3 per person.

Cusworth Park

The historic parkland surrounding Cusworth Hall is open to the public every day of the year.

It’s the perfect location for picnics, walks with the dog, or family days out.  Children’s play areas and a playing field are also located within the  Park and the woodland areas and lakes are home to water voles, kingfishers and many other species.

The Trans Pennine Trail starts at Cusworth Hall and free nature and history walking trails are also available from reception. In partnership with Walking for Health we are offering free guided walks of Cusworth Park on the first and third Friday of every month.  Meet at the car park machines at 9.30am for a 9.45am start (walks last for around 1 hour).

Free Admission (car park charges apply)
