May half term at Beningbrough

Rolling down the bank on Beningbrough's south lawn

Come out to play at Beningbrough with a new nature spotter trail, 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ and all the usual places to adventure.

Open every day from 29 May - 6 June 2021

Things are a little different at the moment with less of the usual activities led by the team. But this doesn't mean the adventure has to stop and for the half term school holidays we've got you sorted.

A round-about adventure

Pick up the new trail and as you explore the gardens, look out for the friendly faces and colourful animal characters, then have a go at the activities nearby.

There are nine to seek out and a few ideas to help you continue the fun at home. Bring your pencil along to make a note as you go.

The trail will continue after the half term for as long as we've got supplies so ask if you're visiting in early June. 

It might get busy in the holidays...

We recommend booking your visit in the school holidays via the What's On - bookings open on Friday's for the following week and close late afternoon the day before. Without a booking we can not guarantee entry.

Tick off more of the essential play list...

Any day, every day

Head over to the wilderness play area and find your favourites or spend time in the den zone. Clamber on the stack, choose from one of the swings - the pendulum is perfect for older children.

The youngest family members haven't been left out with tunnels, balance beams and a wendy house to get their imagination going.

Good to know - the play area is cleaned throughout the day following government guidance. A few pieces of kit have had to be removed to allow for households to play safely and we ask you to refrain from taking food & drink and dogs into the area.
