Through the Seasons

£7.50 per Adult, £7.00 per Concession and £5 per Child.

Annual Prices = Adult – £19.50, Concession – £17.50 and a Family – £39.50

(November to March there is a discounted price of £2 off the normal entry fee.)

Please note the House and Gardens are normally closed to the public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.


The Garden Gate Café is open throughout the year:

Seven days a week – 9.30am – 5pm

No entrance fee.
The Garden Gate Café is wheelchair accessible and it has a disabled toilet. Crook Hall and Gardens itself is difficult for people with mobility issues due to the historic layout. There are gravel paths and steps. Having said that lots of wheelchair users do visit the Hall and Gardens every year and do assure us that they have had a good time here. We also have staff who are very willing to help our guests get around.

We have a car park adjacent to our main entrance which is a 'pay and display' payment method at £2.80 for the full day or 50p per hour. (There are no designated disabled bays and blue badges are not valid.)

If you are booking for Sparkling Afternoon Tea this would normally be served in our Georgian Tea Room which is on the first floor; if the stairs would be too difficult for you we can arrange for it to be served in our Georgian Study on the ground floor.


All four seasons bring something different to the 5 acres of pretty gardens. Click on the images below to see what Spring, Winter, Autumn and Summer look like at Crook Hall and Gardens, Durham City. We use photos that we have taken ourselves and ones that our wonderful guests have sent in. Can you get a beautiful shot to go in one of these albums?
