There is much to see on a guided walk of the parkland

Thursday 19 February at 9.30am

We're working in partnership with Brightstripe to host some health walks around the park. Walking for Health is a national scheme offering walks of 1 to 2 hours lead by a volunteer walk leader. Walking is one of the simplest and most effective forms of exercise you can do; so come along. You'll see the countryside, get some fresh air and maybe meet some new people.

What will you find on a family trail?

Daily  from 14 to 22 February

If you're looking to entertain the family over half term why not come along to Berrington and take part in our Georgian trail. It is an outdoor route which picks up on some of the features of our extensive parkland which was originally designed by Capability Brown.  Brown created a new natural landscape which was the height of fashion in it's time. Trails cost £2.
