Preston Hall Museum is set in 100 acres of beautiful parkland overlooking the River Tees. The museum has displays of art, armour and social history. Visitors can discover what life was like in the home since 1825 and stroll back in time along a typical local street of the 1890s where the museum's resident traditional craftspeople can be found at work.
As well as the museum, Preston Park also has a range of permanent attractions including exotic bird life in the aviary and wildfowl pond and many riverside and woodland paths. You can walk amongst hundreds of beautiful butterflies at Butterfly World, take a ride on the Tees Small Gauge Railway or boat on the river. There's also a safe surface play area for children and a café.
Some of the above activities are seasonal - for more details including information about summer/winter opening times or the annual programme of special events and activies contact Stockton-on-Tees Tourist Information Centre on 01642 393997 or Preston Hall Museum on 01642 527375.
