The gift shop in the Stable courtyard is the destination for admission tickets and to pick up leaflets and information about what is going on in the House and Estate. It has also become the destination for fabulous Temple Newsam inspired gifts for all ages.
The shop is divided into two distinct areas; one for our younger visitors to enjoy dominated by a huge tree with leaves featuring fun facts about the House, farm, wildlife and surrounding landscape. The second section designed and decorated to reflect the Tudor Mansion includes ranges of homeware, kitchen, garden, books and food.

The sumptuous Temple Newsam food range includes; jams, chutneys, biscuits, fudges and teas all with beautifully designed labels and gift cards inspired by the stunning Temple Newsam wallpaper collection. These are just two of the new ranges that offer something unique to our visitors.
