Follow in the footsteps of England’s legends and literary giants


Founded in 1170, Newstead Abbey was in the Byron family for nearly 300 years. Flamboyant and extravagant, the poet lived there only a short time, selling it in 1818. He died in Greece at age 36 and is buried in the family crypt at Hucknall, but his beloved Newfoundland, Boatswain, lies at Newstead, a monument to him inscribed with Byron’s poignant “Epitaph to a Dog.”
