May half term at Brockhampton Estate

Enjoying a trail at Brockhampton Estate

Visit Brockhampton Estate this May half term where there is lots to do for all the family.

The Secret Garden family trail

From Saturday 27 May to Sunday 4 June the whole family can join in to follow a map and find clues hidden around the manor house gardens and orchards at Brockhampton. The Secret Garden was a popular book published in 1911. Find out how the children of this era played in the gardens of Brockhampton. Once you’ve found all the clues you can solve the puzzle and win a prize! £2.00 per trail.

Family Fun

Join Mr Dennett the house gardener, who will be running weekday gardening sessions between 1-2pm.

Gather the whole family to play our giant outdoor games including giant jenga and dominoes.
