Take a 'Look!' at what's happening this March
Now that March is finally here why not come and discover all that Berrington has to offer. With plenty of tours, events and parkland to explore it’s really the best time to ‘Spring’ into action.
What we have on this March
Falling in Love with the Georgians
Thursday 1 March to Thursday 29 March, 10am to 5pm
This month we wanted to take the chance to celebrate Berrington’s own love stories. Members of the team have been looking into tales of love that surround Berrington and we want to share them with you.
As well as this you can learn small, forgotten symbols of regency romance and love. With interesting facts dotted around the mansion, gardens and tea-room, we want to tell you about how the Georgians celebrated love.
A selection of Tours
Every weekend throughout March
Each weekend we have a series of tours that will show you the parts of Berrington that maybe you didn’t know before.
This is a chance to follow our volunteers and learn more about either the ‘Herons in the Park Tours’ or 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.
