Something for all tastes

Family friendly

There's lots to do for all the Family at Arlington Court © Steve Haywood

We run family friendly activities throughout the school holidays including art and craft sessions, den building workshops and outdoor challenges such as bug hunting. Most activities are free and are drop-in sessions which run regardless of the weather.

Look out for our seasonal living history days in 2015 focussing on how tasks for the Arlington Victorian servants changed throughout the year.

Easter fun

Celebrate Easter at Arlington. We have lots to keep all members of the family entertained during the holidays, including the Cadbury Easter Egg trail. Discover what's on at Easter.
