Father's Day at Beningbrough

Bushcraft activities on Father's Day at Beningbrough

Get hands-on this Father's Day with bushcraft activities led by Wild Earth Creative Education then sample local beers from Treboom Brewery and discover more about how it's made.

Just on the outskirts of York with its leafy woodlands and magical walled garden, Beningbrough’s extensive gardens and parkland are packed with hidden corners waiting to be explored. Join us this Father’s Day for a host of free bushcraft activities from Wild Earth Creative Education from a tipi in the wild American Garden. Why not learn how to build a shelter, try some campfire cooking or have a go at green wood carving and take home your very own wooden sculpture.
