Located in the heart of historic Barton upon Humber, Baysgarth House is the ancestral home of the prominent Nelthorpe family. Set in 30 acres of parkland, this Grade II listed building is a beautiful example of Georgian architecture and the perfect setting for a family day out. With a variety of exhibitions held throughout the year, the museum displays reflect the local significance of the house. Admission is free. Open by appointment for group bookings and school visits. Group visits may carry a small charge – please contact us for more details. The museum aims to allow access for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility wherever possible. Access to the ground floor and outbuildings is available to all. However, due to the historic nature of the building, first floor areas have limited access. Please contact the museum for further information.

Perhaps I was too tired but this is not a museum to go out of your way to visit. The surrounding park is mainly grass and mature trees and a few benches.
