Shandy Hall is where he lived and wrote The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman and A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy.
The Trust promotes Sterne's work and international reputation through exhibitions, events and public access to the property and its collection. Shandy Hall is situated 15 miles to the north of York in the beautiful surroundings of the North York Moors National Park
