Join us for may half-term

Whether you're a regular or a first-time visitor to Gibside, we believe that every time you come here, you should have an adventure.

That can be as simple as discovering Strawberry Castle Play Area for the first time, seeing the bees in the hive in the walled garden, spotting a red kite or joining us for an activity.

Every day of the school holidays there's an activity on:

Saturday 27: Frisbee golf, 11 - 3pm

Sunday 28: Music on the avenue with North Tyneside Steelband, 1 - 3pm

Monday 29: Campfire, 11am - 3pm

Tuesday 30: Make an edible window box, 11am - 3pm 

Wednesday 31: Plant safari, 11am - 3pm

Thursday 1 June: Woodland blindfold rope trail, 11am - 3pm

Friday 2: Badminton, 11am - 3pm and Showcase night, 6 - 9pm

Saturday 3: Gibside Market, 10am - 4pm

Sunday 4: '50 things to do before you're 11¾' day

Don't forget that you can make a full day of it on Fridays and Saturdays; the estate is open for even longer until 30 September.
