Preston Park Museum and Grounds

preston park

After nearly three years and £7 million of refurbishment, restoration and redevelopment, Preston Park Museum and Grounds has emerged from its scaffolding shell to provide amazing days out for the whole family once more!

Nestled alongside the River Tees, Preston Hall, a former Georgian gentleman’s residence and former home of industrial magnate Robert Ropner, houses a varied collection of Teesside’s treasures.

Walk through the impressive doors to find out more about those who lived there, the varied museum collection, the vital role the mighty River Tees has played throughout history and the leisure time pursuits that were just as popular then as they are today. Step over a clock spinning backwards to emerge in our Victorian street… why not take afternoon tea and sample some sweets and cakes from times gone by?

From a stroll in Quarry Wood Nature Reserve to a circuit around the new adventure play area or a wander around the Victorian walled kitchen garden – there’s something for everyone to explore in the grounds themselves.

Visit the Preston Park Museum and Grounds website – the adventure starts here!
