Hidden Revealed seasonal highlights

Visitors in the wine cellar at Calke Abbey, Derbyshire

Whether you want to explore the wider parkland or discover more of Calke's fascinating collection, there are plenty of Hidden Revealed events taking place throughout the year. We've picked out some seasonal highlights here...

Seek and reveal

Pick up a 'Seek and Reveal' interactive map from the Ticket Office and start discovering the hidden gems of the wider Calke estate. Scratch off the panels to reveal a hidden feature in the park. 

While you're exploring the parkland, you might spot something unusual lurking among the trees. A range of talented artists have created some fantastic wildlife sculptures which are hiding around the park. How many can you find? Use the Seek and Reveal maps to make sure you find them all!

See snapshots of Calke's past with our new viewfinders, available from the Ticket Office. Find the locations on the map and look through your viewfinder at the images. Do the views look the same today?

A £5 deposit will be required to borrow a viewfinder, which you'll get back when you return it to the Ticket Office – or you can pay £5 and take your viewfinder home with you.
