About Shandy Hall and Gardens

Shandy Hall is a Grade I listed building dating from the mid-15th century. It is now a lived-in museum and literary house that celebrates the life and works of Laurence Sterne, the eighteenth century author of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy.

Shandy Hall is set amid wonderfully varied gardens on the edge of the North York Moors National Park.

The two-acre garden is part cottage garden, part woodland garden, and incorporates a former stone quarry, now known as the Wild Garden. The garden has wildlife at its heart and aims to please the human visitors without compromising its importance as a wildlife habitat.
