Cragside House

Cragside House was formerly the home of the famous inventor, Lord William Armstrong (1810-1900 of Vickers-Armstrong fame). In 1878 Cragside was the first house in the world to be lit by hydro-electricity, powered by generators on the estate. The house is magnificent.

The beautiful grounds and gardens around Cragside form a 1000-acre estate with over 40 miles of paths and roadway, lakes and streams, and boasts some of England's tallest trees. One of the largest rock gardens in Europe leads down to the Iron Bridge, which in turn leads across to the formal garden.
