50 Things

‘50 Things’ is a list of the ultimate outdoor challenges for Hanbury adventurers to complete before you reach the milestone age of 11 and ¾. From bug hunting to bird watching, den building to kite flying, there’s something for every type of explorer.

Here’s some of our favourite ’50 Things’ that can be completed at Hanbury Hall. Pick up your scrapbook from Visitor Reception and get ready to explore.

4. Build A Den

Visit our Wild Play area and build your own forest home. With a plentiful supply of sticks, twigs and leaves you can create a sizeable fort or perhaps you prefer a cosy den for one (good for spying on everyone else).

18. Make Some Wild Art

Collect twigs, leaves, feathers and whatever else you can find in the park to help you create a unique piece of wild art.

28. Climb A Huge Hill

Grab yourself a park walk leaflet from our Welcome Centre and head out to conquer the huge hill that leads up to nearby Hanbury Church. 

44. Go Bird Watching

The gardens are full of many different species of birds all year. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for the sights and sounds of our feathered friends.

Spring Walks

We have walks suitable for all abilities. There are three different parkland walks that are avaliable at Hanbury, all of varying lengths and difficulties. We have the Blue Route which is a easy going walk that will take around 15-20 minutes to complete and is a walk that all the family will be able to have a go at. The Grey Route is slightly longer and will take around 20-25 minutes to complete and will take you through the old deer park and many of the original eighteenth centuary features such as the Semi-Circle and Brick Kiln Pond. The final walk is the Orange Route which takes around 30-40 minutes to complete and will take you through some of the avenues throughout the parkland and will pass by some of the oldest trees we have here at Hanbury. 

Make sure you pick up your parkland walks map from the Stableyard when you get to Hanbury.

Tea rooms

Start your morning right with a cup of tea, or if it's a coffee you're after then we have a wide variety to offer you before your exploring. There will be some savoury snacks will also be available. For lunch, we have plenty of warming foods on offer in our Servant’s Hall - hot soups, tasty jacket potatoes, freshly baked cakes and scrumptious scones.

The Servant’s Hall serves lunch between 12noon-2.30pm.
