Family playing cricket on the pleasure grounds

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 installation by local artist Lorna Brown? She will be offering you a fresh perspective of the women of Berrington with a focus on Thomas Harley’s wife, Ann Bangham. Drawing inspiration from both Berrington’s past and our present, Brown’s installation 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.

Why not finish your trip and add a cherry on the cake with a treat that takes your fancy from either the tea-room, gift-shop or second-hand bookshop?
