Brandling House


Brandling House is a hospitality and conference centre at Gosforth Park Racecourse. It was originally built as a country house between 1755-1764 for Charles Brandling, a wealthy land and mine owner, and MP.  In 1880, the house and land was sold to High Gosforth Park Ltd, the company formed to establish the racecourse, which opened in 1881. The interior of the building was destroyed by a fire started by suffragettes in 1914;  and restored in 1921.[1] Brandling House is Grade II* listed on the National Heritage List for England.[2]
