Welcome to the museum at Sewerby Hall

Sewerby Hall is a Grade I listed Georgian country house with Regency and Victorian additions set in 50 acres of picturesque park. The Hall contains an important collection of Amy Johnson memorabilia and galleries in which a temporary exhibition programme is displayed. Sewerby Hall reopened in August 2014 after a £2.6 million restoration programme which has recreated the look and feel of the whole house as it would have been in the Edwardian era.
