Sports at Gibside

Runners making their way along the avenue at Gibside

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....

We know how important your health and wellbeing are and enjoy offering this special place as the backdrop to your day.

Whether that's by simply taking off on your own for some 'me time' or by joining one of the organised runs and walks.

Yes, this historic landscaped garden plays host to a parkrun, Great Run Local and a health walk.
