Fun for families at Berrington

Here at Berrington Hall we have lots of activities to keep both little ones and grown-ups entertained. So why not pop on your wellies and bring your family for a wintry adventure?

Natural play and outdoor games

Lots of fun can be had in the parkland and gardens at Berrington, from running, jumping and climbing in the woods, to building the best den in our den-building area. 

The natural play area at Berrington provides a safe, outdoor space for families to enjoy, wrap up warm and see what adventures you can have here! The gardens and parkland are excellent for stretching legs, kids love to explore the walled garden where there’s an orchard, potting shed and plenty more to explore.

From Saturday 4 December, families can take part in a Percy the Park Keeper trail as they find the clues hidden around the garden. Trails are £2 each and include a self-led trail sheet and prize.

The mansion will also be decorated for Christmas from Saturday 20 December when families can take in all the wonderful sights and smells of a Georgian Christmas. Horse-drawn carriage rides will also be available for the first three weekends of December for a small extra fee.

Outdoor adventures

There are lots of adventures to be had by trying some of the '50 Things to do before you’re 11 ¾' activities. Download an activity sheet and see how many of the activities you can check off on your visit. Will you be able to 'build a den', 'discover wild animal clues' or 'create some wild art' on your visit?

We're sorry but adult's and children's bikes and scooters are not permitted within the gardens and grounds.

Stop for a snack

After all that fun you might fancy a snack to build up your energy. Our tea-room is open from 10am to 3pm, where you can grab some take-away snacks such as hot and cold drinks, wrapped cakes, pasties and ice creams.

We hope you and your family have an amazing time here at Berrington.
