Cragside, National Trust


Discover an engineer’s dream perched high on a rocky crag.

Cragside, the home of Lord Armstrong, Victorian inventor and landscape genius, was the first house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity.

Explore the surrounding landscape where you’ll find one of the largest rock gardens in Europe, a blooming formal garden and over 40 miles of lakeside and woodland walks.
