Berrington Hall is showcasing a series of costume exhibitions against the backdrop of its beautiful Georgian interiors. Costumes displays from the Charles Paget Wade collection and more will be on display throughout 2015 including exhibitions of period drama costumes. Plus come and dress up like a Georgian; try on their extreme fashions and ask yourself  'Does my bum look big in this?'

January and February weekends

During weekends in January and February our conservation staff and volunteers will be showing visitors some of the work that goes on behind the scenes to clean and maintain the treasures that we look after at Berrington Hall.  This includes several important collections of furniture and costumes.  Come along any Saturday or Sunday between 11am and 1pm.

Thursday 5 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.
