Have fun at Berrington whatever the weather

Does it feel like ages since you explored the great outdoors? Well guess what, the feeling's mutual. Nature misses you. But don't despair - now's the perfect time to do something about it.

We've put together a list of '50 things to do before you're 11¾'. We want to encourage kids to get mucky, discover their wild side and get closer to nature. Come to Berrington and climb a tree, build a den, fly a kite, hunt for bugs and many more.

As part of our year long celebration of Georgian costume we are displaying in the mansion fashions and textiles which bring colour to the era.  The brightest costumes from the Charles Paget Wade collection and Hereford Museum and Resource Learning Centre will be on show demonstrating how important colour was to the fashions of the day both in the textiles and decoration.

Did you know that the Georgians flew kites so it has been a popular pastime for many generations.  We hold the Hereford and Leominster kite festival in the parkland every year and it's lots of fun.  Bring your own kite, buy one on the day or watch the experts, we promise you'll be amazed.  Don't forget it's also one of the '50 things to do'. Normal admission fees apply.
