Cannon Hall Museum Park & Gardens always makes for a wonderful day out, with things to do and see for everyone. Its glorious rooms are packed with fine arts and family fun. Imagine the bustles and bonnets of the Austin era as you explore.
Cannon Hall Museum is famed for its special events and Pear Day is an unmissable date in Yorkshire's food calendar. The Pear Tree collection is one of the most extensive in the North of England and has over 40 varieties.
Moorcroft Pottery makes up the largest part of the museums collections and boasts the finest supply in a public museum. The Moorcroft Company generously revise the collection keeping it interesting and up to date in terms of design.
Cannon Hall Museum has hosted "Charge", the Regimental Museum of
the 13th / 18th Royal Hussars (Queen Mary's Own) and the Light
Dragoons since 1969. It is fitting that the Regimental Museum
is at Cannon Hall as the Regiment recruits many of its soldiers
from Barnsley and across South Yorkshire. In the museum you
can explore the history behind the Regiment's campaigns and find
out about some of the men who have served.
Come and discover Cannon Hall's 70 acres of rolling parklands and beautiful gardens. Relax, wander or hideaway. It's the perfect place for a stroll. Take some time to have a browse in the gift shop or enjoy some refreshments on site.
Car parking charges apply.
