Ark club creatures
The Ark club was set up by Edith, Lady Londonderry way back in 1915. It was a club for her friends and when they joined they were asked to choose an animal to represent themselves.
If you've been to Mount Stewart before, you'll know that in the Italian garden there's a statue of Noah's ark with animals all around it. Most of those animal statues honour people who were in the club. Download our activity sheet and tick off the animals you can find in our gardens. There's also a fun wordsearch to complete.
