The multi award winning Blackburn Wing is a 2000 sq ft treehouse shaped like an airplane wing and nestled in ancient woodland at the heart of the Bowcliffe Estate.
Designed and built with meticulous attention to detail, the copper and glass masterpiece pays tribute to aviation hero Robert Blackburn, who lived in Bowcliffe Hall and was a Yorkshireman who introduced the first scheduled air service in Great Britain and designed and built one of the first powered aeroplanes.
The Ballroom is a spectacular space that has been fully renovated and restored from its original start in life as the Drawing Room of Bowcliffe Hall, part of the stunning 58 acre Bowcliffe Estate in Bramham, near Wetherby, West Yorkshire.
With an awe-inspiring chandelier, ceiling gilded with 23.5 carat gold, exclusive hand blocked wallpaper, art deco bar, fully integrated AV equipment for presentational needs – this room offers a stunning backdrop to any event.
