Create memories at Berrington this autumn

With autumn drawing in we want to get you outdoors and into the new season to embrace the autumnal colours, sounds and smells. So why not add some colour to your autumnal afternoon and create memories at Berrington?

Enjoy the shifting of the seasons as the sights, sounds and smells of autumn begin to transform Berrington into a sea of vivid colour. Pop on your walking boots and discover 'Capability' Brown's final landscape masterpiece and see the walled garden orchard laden with autumnal fruit as the harvest season begins.

In the parkland, you can explore 'Capability' Brown's final masterpiece as the autumnal colour fills the parkland. You could also step inside the mansion and discover 'A Dress Fit for a King' with 'Eye am She' by Lorna J Brown. Uncover the story of an extraordinary woman with an extraordinary dress as we reveal what life was like for eighteenth century women in this exhibition on the first floor.

As well as all of this, we can start to look forward to all of the events that we have coming up in September and October. This includes Book Month throughout September, dahlia talks, a drawing and painting workshop, Heritage Open Day, our first ever 10K and 5K fundraisers and Apple Month throughout October. Little explorers can look forward to a spooky half term from Saturday 26 October, with a murder mystery to solve and a Rumplestilskin trail to follow.

While you're here, why not dress up in the mansion, create some wild art in the natural play area, build a den and kick about in fallen leaves in the parkland and tuck into some hearty, harvest-themed recipes in the Old Servants' Hall tea-room.

As you begin to create memories, either out in the parkland or inside the mansion, we can continue with our critical conservation work at this special place. We look forward to seeing you this autumn to celebrate the new season.
