Heritage and Family

Rudby Hall is a historic royal residence built in 1838 for the daughter of King William IV, Lady Amelia Cary and her husband the 10th Viscount Falkland, now available to hire on an exclusive basis of the whole estate for your celebrations and events.


In 1837 King William IV gifted each of his children £28,500, which prompted Lady Amelia Cary and her husband to commission a beautiful home from renowned architect Anthony Salvin. Originally named Leven Grove after the previous house located on the land, and then Skutterskelfe Hall in the late 19th century, the Grade II* listed stately home was subsequently renamed Rudby Hall in the 1980s.

The hall has enjoyed a colourful history; remaining in the Falkland family for three generations until 1898, it was later a family residence for several distinguished Yorkshire families, billets for soldiers during the Second World War and the headquarters for a leading international chemical company in the 1980s and 1990s.
