50 Things at Hanbury Hall 

‘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. 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.
