Become an explorer at Berrington Hall this half-term
Get outdoors and explore Berrington Hall this half-term. We want to take you back in time and show you life at Berrington for the Georgians. You can even become a true explorer with our brand new trail or you can have a go at den building. We have something for everyone with talks, tea-rooms and even live music.
Join us this half-term as we have plenty to explore and investigate. Why not step inside the mansion and discover a brand new exhibition, 'A Dress Fit for a King' with 'Eye am She' by local artist Lorna J Brown? This will reveal to you elements of the original eighteenth-century dress that belonged to Ann Bangham, wife of Thomas Harley. As well as this Lorna J Brown will be offering you a fresh perspective of the women of Berrington with a focus on Ann Bangham. Drawing inspiration from both Berrington’s past and our present, Brown’s artwork is not to be missed.
If you fancy getting outdoors then why not explore all that our parkland has to offer with acres of ‘Capability’ Brown’s final masterpiece to uncover. With a lake, woodlands and a den building area, there’s plenty to see.
You could also enjoy the walled garden which was ‘Capability’ Brown’s final masterpiece and is filled with plenty of different plants to enjoy.
