Things to find at Berrington
The Dome Project
Berrington's iconic dome, designed by eighteenth century archiect Henry Holland, is being prepared to be conserved and restored. This large scale project is one that we are now excited to have up and running. Please read the article below for further detail.
Daily, 10am to 5pm
As part of the Berrington Garden Project, we have been working closely with SHYPP (Supported Housing for Young People Project), and have offered the young people a chance to creatively respond to the gardens. Now, we are inviting you to come and discover this new exhibition in the Welcome Centre and learn about what the gardens mean to this group.
The Garden Project is a large scale project that is looking to revive the gardens and offer them as a space for groups throughout the community.
