Visiting Hanbury this spring

A family day out at Hanbury Hall

With birds chiming, spring sunshine is beginning to peep through the clouds and the daffodils starting to emerge, spring is the perfect time to plan your visit to Hanbury.

Set off on a walk

With just under 400 acres of parkland ready for exploring we recommend pulling on your walking boots and wrapping up warm for a satisfyingly squelchy walk aroud the estate. Walking maps can be picked up from Visitor Reception on arrival, or can be followed by the coloured way-markers. 

For those of you looking for a more gentle stroll, try a meander through the formal gardens. With a walled garden, orchard and bowling green ready to be explored. 

Due to recent heavy rainfall we recommend wearing suitable sturdy footwear on your walk. Boot cleaners can be found at the entrance to the house.

Delve into the history of the Hall 

From first sight Hanbury Hall looks like everyone's idea of an English country house: warm red bricks, symmetrical front and grand entrance. But what lies behind such a confident facade? 

The is open throughout the winter period until 4pm, with last entry 3.30pm. We recommend leaving 30-40 minutes to complete your visit through the house. 

(Please note that the whole property is closed on Wednesday 22 & Thursday 23 January)
