A great visit to both Hall and gardens. Hall is self guided but with information in all rooms. Well worth taking time to view at a leisurely pace. Gardens are superb- stunning topiary and beautiful borders.

Travelling in the Lakes we came across Levens Hall. Only had just over one hour before closure. Clearly needed more time to do justice to the house and gardens. Didn't realise that they had renowned topiary gardens. Just a wonderful experience.More

You can buy tickets anytime you like online. They don't need to be printed and so showing them to our ticket kiosk attendant on your phone is totally fine. We look forward to seeing you soon
