Before You Go

Parking: There is no parking available at the site. Parking is available in Clifton village where there is a small layby on the other side of the road next to the church. Please do not park at the gates to the site as this causes issues for the farm vehicles at work.

Other Information: Clifton Hall sits within a working farm - please do not park in front of the farm gates or block the farm track.

Plan a Great Day Out

Nearby Brougham Castle was once a formidable barrier against Scots invaders and a prestigious residence of the powerful Clifford family. Today the remains of the castle are picturesquely sited by the River Eamont. There is a shop selling gifts, drinks and snacks.

Brougham, along with Countess Pillar, Mayburgh Henge and King Arthur's Round Table, can all be visited on a walk devised by the Eden Rivers Trust.
