Architectural Building Historic Site
Experience the life of the 19th-century aristocracy at Cragside House and Gardens. Originally built as a modest lodge on a rocky hillside in 1863, the world's first home to be lit using hydroelectric power subsequently transformed into the Free Tudor mansion you'll encounter today. Start your tour in the house, which showcases a large collection of fine art and opulent furnishings. Head out to the gardens, where you'll find a hedgerow labyrinth and the world's largest rock garden. Afterward, take your rest in the Tea Rooms while enjoying traditional English tea and homemade scones. Check out the on-site shop for high-quality souvenirs, such as handcrafted pottery and local foods.
