Sports at Gibside

Runners waiting to start their night run

It's been scientifically proven that getting outdoors and being active can improve both your health and wellbeing. While some opt for an indoor gym, we like to think we've got something pretty special here....

Well, not only do we have a weekly sports offer, this historic garden also plays host to some pretty challenging one-off events.

Plus, every second Saturday of the month, we host a Sports night in the pub. Come along and enjoy some healthy competition (we can't be responsible for any disagreements) as we play skittles, table tennis and more.


Special events coming up

Gibside Night Run, Saturday 3 February

A Night Run is a unique way to experience this grand estate when darkness falls. It’s a chance to see Gibside in a different light. There are two routes to choose from: the 2km Explorer route ideal for walkers and young family members, or for a longer challenge, the Adventurer is a 6km route.

Cycling to Gibside

While there aren't the right surfaces to cycle around Gibside itself, lots of people enjoy cycling to Gibside. Once you get here, park up your ride and enjoy a free tea when you buy a snack. Fancy joining other cyclists to get here? Well, in partnership with Newcastle County Council, British Cycling and HSBC UK have some scheduled in. Sunday 1 October: Newcastle - Gibside Loop - 24 mile ride. Sunday 22/10/2017 Newcastle - 2 Valleys to Gibside - 19 mile ride.
