About the house

Relive history as you explore the Grade 1 listed Sewerby Hall. The house was built throughout 1714 and 1720 by the Greame family. Further extensions were added between 1808 and 1856 to include the portico, stable block, gatehouse and Orangery.

A full refurbishment of the house in 2014 has restored the home property to how it would have looked in 1910. Come and experience a genuine Edwardian home, transformed using furniture from the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Join in!

Learn about a servant's life at Sewerby Hall with our interactive display. Take part and dress up as Edwardian servants or members of the Greame family, and chat with our costumed interpreters. Make sure you visit the nursery, where children of all ages can play with our collection of Edwardian toys. Head to our servant's wing to see the kitchen; complete with working coal-fired range, the butler's pantry and the housekeeper's parlour.

Amy Johnson

The House was sold to Bridlington Corporation in 1934, and Hull-born aviatrix Amy Johnson was invited to open the Hall to the public on 1 June, 1936. Memorabilia was donated in 1958 by the family of the local aviator herself and is on permanent display. New items were added for the 80 year anniversary. There are two dedicated rooms, one displaying the collection and the other showing a short film about her record breaking flight to Australia.

Under 5s

There is lots for our youngest visitors to enjoy, including hands-on objects and activities, 'Sewerby Squirrel Finds' cards to interact with in the period rooms, and (during term time) Explorer Kits to borrow.

Why not also come along to our Sewerby Squirrels drop in sessions on Monday mornings during term time. Each session has a sensory area, a quiet corner and a themed activity linking with the museum displays, the gardens and the beach so every week there is something different to experience!

Sewerby Squirrels events
Crown Green Bowls (Bridlington Bay Bowling Club)
11am - 4pm
The Bridlington Bay Bowling Club was established in 1977 by a small number of enthusiasts who negotiated with the then owners of Sewerby Hall and Gardens, the East Yorkshire Borough Council. Since then the club has grown enormously with a current tally of around 95 full and social members. Today the club is represented in a number of league matches against other Crown Green Bowling Clubs.
