Adventures await you behind closed doors as well as outside in the fresh air.
Have you ever spotted a lion inside a house or a befriended a mouse? Do you like dressing up and playing make believe?
All dressed up
Get dressed up as a servant and imagine how life below the stairs would’ve been at Attingham Park in Shropshire. Or if you feel the urge to be a little grander, head to Berrington Hall in Herefordshire to dress up as a Georgian (you can even rope your parents and grandparents in to get dressed up with you).
We’re going on a lion hunt
Lions of all shapes and sizes are hiding in paintings, tables and windows at Canons Ashby in Northamptonshire and Wightwick Manor near Wolverhampton, and don’t forget to look up as they might even be in the ceilings.
There are little creatures waiting for you too
Mary Mouse is waiting to guide you round The Workhouse in Nottinghamshire, she’ll introduce you to lots of different people along the way so you can see what life was like living and working in a workhouse.
In the heart of Worcester city centre you will find Greyfriars’ House and Garden, there is lots of wildlife to explore in the garden, but will you find all the birds that hide amongst the rooms inside the house?
Step back in time
Coughton Court, in Warwickshire, is looking at all the ways in which the house and its inhabitants were affected by the conflicts of the past. To help you explore pick up your spotters guide and see if you can find all the artefacts that are linked to war.
Boy Scouts and Girl Guides will know this motto well. The Museum of Childhood at Sudbury Hall is celebrating 100 years of the Brownies and other great children’s groups, will you see the uniform and badges your parents used to wear and collect?
Fancy a bit of fresh air? Head outdoors to see what adventures await you there.
