Take a 'Look!' at what's happening this April

Now that the cold spell is over why not come and discover all that Berrington has to offer. With plenty of events, tours and parkland to explore it’s really the best time to explore Berrington Hall.

What we have on this April

Easter

Friday 30 March to Sunday 15 April, 10am to 5pm

Our Easter offer is packed with things to do. We are particularly excited to introduce our brand new event ‘Lego builders’. This is an activity which is completely different to anything we’ve done before. Get your creative head on and see if you can recreate the walled garden using Lego pieces. This is a different way to get outdoors and enjoy the gardens.

We also have a trail, tours and so much more to explore. This promises to be an Easter to get out and into nature here at Berrington.

The Duke and Duchess of the garden trail

3 April to 15 April, 10am to 4pm

Follow the clues around the garden to become a Georgian Duke or Duchess. Demand the design and create the garden you want just like Thomas and Ann Harley did. Who knows what you might come up with?

Whilst you're here don't forget to play dress up in the mansion and spot the spring flowers. Don't miss our new spring ranges in the gift shop; every penny you spend at Berrington helps us keep it special for future generations.

£2.50 per trail, includes a prize. Normal admission applies.

Selection of tours

Weekends: 7- 8 April and 28 - 29 April

We have a series of tours that will give you a fresh perspective of how you see Berrington.

This is a chance to follow our volunteer Frank Ryding and learn more about either the acres of parkland on the ‘Estate Tours’ or the building itself on the ‘Falling in the Love with the Georgians – Architectural Tours’.

If either of them interest you then why not have a look on the ‘What’s On’ page below for more details?

Look! Look! Look!

Last year, with the support of Trust New Art and the Arts Council England, internationally renowned artists, Heather and Ivan Morison brought Berrington's walled garden to life with an eighteenth century inspired creation. They combined the history of eighteenth century fashions, and used research of how the family might have used the garden. It is also a space for you to connect with Berrington's garden and learn about how we want to raise funds to restore neglected parts of the garden back to their Georgian origins. Recent research and archaeological studies have indicated and confirmed that Berrington's Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds are highly significant. This is because they were designed and created by 'England's greatest gardener' Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Go on take a look!

Tea-room and gift shop

Our gift shop and tea-room are the perfect way to complete your trip to Berrington. From a hot meal made with Berrington’s garden produce, to a new scarf with the latest National Trust design, there’s bound to be something that you can enjoy.

You could even pay a visit to our Second Hand Bookshop to find yourself a bargain. This would be a great way to contribute to the Walled Garden and Pleasure Ground Restoration Project too.
