No half measures this half-term!

How good do you feel when you try new things?

After a winter of deep cleaning and repairs, dust sheets will be folded, clocks re-set, and the 400 year old doors to East Riddlesden Hall will re-open on Saturday 18 February. Why not visit us this half-term and take part in our exciting new family trail. There's more than enough to keep everyone busy.

Willow planting

Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 February, 10.30am - 12.30pm

Come and roll up your sleeves and help plant willow shoots at one of the drop in sessions on the lower field. Later in the year these will be weaved into a willow tunnel for families to enjoy.

No need to book, just turn up and wear suitable clothing.

House and garden

Saturday 18 February - Sunday 26 February, 10.30am - 4.30pm

Join us this half-term and enjoy searching high and low, finding facts, exploring and discovering new things with our brand new trail. Then why not take inspiration from your time in the house and garden and get creative in with seasonal arts crafts in the Discovery room.

Property closed Thursday and Friday. Normal admission charges apply.
