Family fun

If you're looking for something fun to do this autumn, make sure you come to Lanhydrock.

Make wild art or race around the estate, and don't forget to look out for our spooky half-term garden trail.

This winter at Lanhydrock we discovered a book in our collection that once belonged to Henry VIII. It was used to help him annul his marriage to Catherine of Aragon so he could marry Anne Boleyn and is on display in the gallery now.

This Saturday

Join our weekly parkrun around Lanhydrock's estate every Saturday morning at 9am.

It's not a race, but a timed 5k run, and open to everyone.


Hiring a cycle at Lanhydrock cycle hire

The cycle trails are open all year, and there's no better time to explore the new 10km of off road cycle tracks. A perfect escape for new and experienced cyclists. No bike? No matter, the bike hire is open everyday 10am-4pm. 

Autumn colour

I wonder why it got its name?

The garden at Lanhydrock is bursting into autumn colour as the leaves turn orange and red on the trees. Look out for our striking acers and this beautiful parrotia for the best shades of the season.
