Explore all that Berrington has to offer this summer

Blow off steam and run wild at Berrington this summer. Let your little ones reconnect with nature and the outdoors with '50 things' fun, daily trails, boating on the lake, traditional games and much more.

The secret garden opened for the first time

Daily, 10am to 5pm

Join us for the first time as we reveal a secret part of 'Capability' Brown's masterpiece for the first time. From 6 July onwards, visitors will be able to access the curved section of the walled garden and discover this part of Berrington that has never been opened before. This part of the gardens holds national significance as it is only one of two in the country that Brown designed to this unique curved shape, and it is the only one that visitors are able to explore. 

Why not come and witness as the gardens reclaim this area and the new horticultural displays come to life? horticultural 

LOOK! LOOK! LOOK! By Heather and Ivan Morison

Daily, 10am to 5pm

Internationally renowned artists Heather and Ivan Morison have been inspired by Berrington’s Georgian origins and the Georgian culture. The Morison’s have combined different elements of Berrington's past to create Berrington’s very own pavilion in the walled garden; 'LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!'.

We want to celebrate this installation and so we will be hosting a series of summer time events such as kite building and live music performances, from within it. Why not have a look on the 'What's On' page to find out more.

Everyday offers…

See if any of our parkland walks inspire you to get out there and discover all that ‘Capability’ Brown’s landscape has to offer. Berrington has acres of Herefordshire landscape just waiting to be explored.

Step inside the mansion and discover our first floor with our exhibition and installation, 'A Dress Fit for a King'. This is an exhibition which uncovers elements of the original dress of Ann Bangham, Thomas Harley's wife.

This is accompanied by the new art piece 'Eye am She', by Herefordshire based artist, Lorna J Brown. Brown's work is designed to offer you a chance to reflect on the Georgians culture and the everyday lives of women.

We also have some traditional garden games out on the lawns. You might like to have a go at croquet on the front lawn, or try your hand at cricket.

Alternatively you could always take up a deck chair and enjoy the walled garden and 'LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!'. We also have a series of events such as 'Boating on the lake', we will have live music and so much more. Why not come and take a 'LOOK'?
