Lotherton 50th Anniversary

Join us in a year of celebrations as we mark 50 years of Lotherton as a museum.

In 1969 we welcomed our first visitors, as we opened the doors to the country park and museum you know and love today. Lotherton is a place to make memories and we are proud that these memories span generations of families, with some of the people who visited us as children still coming today with their grandchildren. Lotherton has a special place in many people’s hearts and we hope this continues for many years to come.

If you have any memorabilia, photographs or reminiscence of the early days at Lotherton then we would love to hear from you. Email us at lotherton@leeds.gov.uk or tag us on social media @Lotherton.
