Cliffe Castle Museum
Cliffe Castle Museum

Cliffe Castle was originally the spectacular mansion of the local Victorian millionaire and textile manufacturer, Henry Isaac Butterfield. It stands in attractive hillside grounds with greenhouses, a garden centre, aviaries and a children’s play area. The house is now a large museum with a wide variety of displays. These include an array of glittering minerals, local rocks and fossils (including a 2 metre long fossil amphibian), mounted birds and local mammals, original furnished rooms with chandeliers, William Morris stained glass, old dolls, toys and domestic items and a programme of temporary exhibitions.
