Will you be able to find all the beehives in Hanbury Hall?

Who says that hide and seek has to be about running wild in the outdoors?

There are so many hide and seek activities to be enjoyed under a roof and out of the rain.

What will you find on these hidden trails?

Firstly, over to Lincolnshire, did you know you can go greyhound spotting at Belton House? They are everywhere, but not all of them are so easy to find – look high, look low and even look on the guides.

For a trail that is a little more creepy, head to Charlecote Park in Warwickshire to seek out their cuddly critters hidden throughout the house.

Mary the Mouse lives at The Workhouse in Nottinghamshire and she has created a trail for you to explore all the building’s hidden nooks and crannies.

Something a little different

Get those brain cells working with Croome’s quiz in Worcestershire. Follow the trail and investigate the secrets of Croome room by room. Look out for hidden boxes with special missions to carry out and discover more about the 250 years of this house.

Be brave and embrace the wet weather

And don’t forget, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. So if you still fancy a game of hide and seek in the great outdoors, don those wellies, waterproofs, grab a brolly and run, run, run. Coming ready or not.
