    Bags of fun

    Children can borrow a fun bag to make their visit even more enjoyable. Contents vary but can include a sensory trail around the garden, colouring, puzzles and skipping ropes. What will you find in your bag?

  • Can you find me and my batty friends around the Clergy House? © NT/Holly Jones

    Bat spotting

    The real bats that live in the Clergy House will be asleep in the day time, but you can still look out for our larger, cuddlier variety that are around day and night. How many will you see?

  • Dressing up clothes for kids at Alfriston Clergy House © NT/Holly Jones

    Dress as a servant or a lord?

    Discover what's in the dressing up box. As a servant you could take the bread out of the oven to serve his lordship at the high table in the great hall.
