Have to ticked off all of the 50 things to do before you're 11¾ in the outdoors? This year we've got a brand new list of activities to be ticked off, all indoors. For the first time we're inviting you to experience Hanbury in a more playful way with our brand new 50 things to do before you're 125¾ activity sheet, all in celebration of the National Trust's 125th birthday.

What is '50 things' indoors?

You're invited to experience Hanbury in a whole new playful way. This is your invitation to stop, look and experience the rare and beautiful sights, sounds and unusual items found within our house and collection.

You'll need to visit more than one property to complete the whole list, as we're all offering different opportunites and activities to try. Simply pick up your leaflet from Visitor Reception on arrival, head on over to the house and get involved.
