Fun for families at Berrington Hall

There is always something to do at Berrington Hall. There are different activities throughout the year for all ages both indoors and out with 'Capability' Brown for kids too.

We are please to announce our new children's play area. Thanks to funds raised by our supporters we have been able to improve facilities for the little ones and have installed a new playground not far from the tea-room. The play area is designed for children aged from 4 to 11 years old and features a jungle climber, slide and cradle swings for the younger ones and a basket swing for older children. We're sure it will get your seal of approval.

Don't forget there are also gardens and woods to explore, dens to build and family cricket and croquet just waiting to be played in the pleasure grounds. There is a children's bay in the Welcome Centre where they can start their visit by designing their own landscape.

Get stuck into Georgian life at Berrington Hall

In the house find out what life was like by looking at the family's photograph albums, or what it was like to work as a servant ironing the clothes, or to live upstairs wearing the costumes of the Lords and Ladies in our 'Wig and Bum Shop'. We have quizzes designed to help you find out.
