TESTIMONIALS
"Visited this magnificent House on Sep 20th 2016. Purchased in 1983 by its current owner an American Businessman Dr Rolph. Who purchased the castle with 1.5 Hectares of land. The building was in a state of disrepair and in need of substantial roof and structural repair. In 1986 Dr Rolph founded the Gerald Arthur Rolph Foundation for Historic Preservation and Education to preserve Allerton Park for English and World Heritage. Im so glad that he did, his contribution to Gothic Architecture and renovation is priceless to our Nation."

"Wow from the first moment you enter the castle. The huge wooden doors at the entrance is so well hung you can open it with one finger. Then you enter a huge space with a 70 feet high ceiling with a wooden roof. Lots of wooden panels and carvings. You go into a large white plaster room that almost gives the impression of a Mediterranean tent. Here you can have tea and cake to wait for the guided tour. An amazing jewel in Yorkshire ! "
