Take a tour of Bywell Hall

Bywell Hall is a Palladian gem, situated on the banks of the River Tyne. In its fascinating past, the house has played host to prime ministers and politicians and has remained in the Beaumont family since the estate’s purchase in 1819.

Recently restored and now a family home, Bywell Hall houses a stunning collection of old masters, rare furniture, porcelain and antiquities. The guided tours take in the majestic state rooms and weave together family and social history in a lively ~1hr experience.
