Ormesby Hall

Beautiful 18th century mansion with park, gardens and a permanent model railway exhibition.

The Pennyman family's intimate mansion is an attractive rural mansion and gardens on the edge of Middlesbrough. The simple Palladian façade masks exquisite interior decoration, paintings and furnishing. The old service wing houses the Victorian Kitchen and Laundry, which on selected dates brings to life the roles of Ormesby's servants with costumed volunteers.

There is a large permanent model railway exhibition in the Old Wing with three different layouts including Thomas the Tank Engine.

Dogs on leads in the park only.
