With international artists, exhibitions and re-opened servant spaces, below stairs; there's so much to see. Explore the mansion, walk around acres of parkland, find a treat or two in the tea-room or discover some goodies in the gift shop.
Although we are into our winter season with it's weekend openings, there is still plenty to see and do here at Berrington.
Parkland and walks
Get outdoors this winter and enjoy acres of 'Capabilty' Brown's final design. Explore the pathways surrounding the lake, listen to the sounds of the wildlife in the woodland or find a new spot to stop and have a flask of tea as you look out over the Herefordshire countryside.
Fancy finding a treat?
Both our gift shop and tea-room are open as usual and have some seasonal offers for you to enjoy.
Christmas at Berrington
Join us from 18 November as Christmas comes to Berrington. See the hall decorated in a traditional Georgian style and ride up the carriage way on a horse and carriage. You could even have a go at the 'Glorious Georgian Christmas Trail' to win a prize.
Look! Look! Look!
With the support of Trust New Art and the Arts Council England, internationally renowned artists, Heather and Ivan Morison bring to life Berrington's walled garden with an eighteenth century inspired creation. Combining the history of eighteenth century fashions, and using 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 study has 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!
Waste to waist - Frock On
If you are a lover of Georgian fashion then we have a treat lined up for you this year. We are joined by a group of inspiring women who are facing personal hardships. They have used their creative passion to form the sewing group, 'Frock on'. This wonderful sewing group is bringing some Georgian glamour to the upstairs of Berrington.
Inspired by the Georgian style, they have created a series of waistcoats. However, these are period costumes with a twist. They are all created from up-cycled fabrics that would otherwise be wasted. This creative and unique style is another way that we hope to take you one step closer to Berrington's Georgian origins.
