Children looking at insects

Calling all nature lovers!

Sunday 28 – Monday 29 May

Come and get a little closer to nature this May bank holiday at Nunnington Hall! Spring is the perfect time to head outside and start exploring the great outdoors. From bug hunting and bird watching to snail racing, we have some cracking ways to help you kick start your nature adventure.

We'll also be joined by the education team from ‘Lion Learner’ will be visiting to ask one very important question – will anyone be brave enough to hold a scary beast! From cockroaches to lizards, will anybody rise to the challenge and tick off another 50 Things activity? The guys will be around all day sharing their animal knowledge and answering questions.

Normal admission prices apply.

Let the adventure continue………..

How many challenges have you already ticked off from the 50 things activity list? Here are just a few of our favourites to complete at Nunnington Hall.


Make a mud pie!

Mud glorious mud! The Nunnington Mud Kitchen is open for business each day, offering a superb menu of fresh mud pies and worm casseroles.  No need to book a table, simply turn up and tuck in!


Go bird watching

Head to the cutting garden and take a peep through the bamboo bird hide to see what you might find. Birds can be easily scared, so be as quiet as a mouse and watch them fly in to feed. You might also spot a frog or newt swimming in the pond!  

Pooh sticks

Step one - challenge someone to a pooh-stick battle! Step two - choose the best stick! Step three - find the perfect spot on the bridge, count to three and drop your sticks into the river Rye. 

Plant it, grow it, eat it!
