Pies and pints

On the first and third Saturday of each month, Gibside holds a bustling farmers' market selling delicious local breads, cheeses, sausages and lots more. And every Friday and Saturday evening, join us for Sundown at Gibside. A pub and beer garden with themed nights and delicious food.


It's harvest time in our gardens and countryside. We'd like to invite you to join us to forage for food in Washington Old Hall's historic Nuttery on Sunday 27 September. There will be hazelnuts in abundance, but what else?


Become a printing apprentice, like the young Thomas Bewick, at our family printing days at Cherryburn on Sunday's 20 September and 18 October. Create your own beautiful print to take home.

Adventure play

Have you played at Wallington's fort? Scaled Strawberry Castle at Gibside? Or hopped on the Marsden Rattler at Souter Lighthouse? From natural playscapes to zip wires and spiral slides, there are loads of play areas in the North East. So let the kids have fun while you enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Training outdoors

Are you training for the Great North Run? Mad about cycling? Or do you just love walking somewhere scenic? If you love being outdoors for pleasure and to get fit, check out our downloadable routes, group activities and events.
