Summer days out at Quarry Bank
Step into summer at Quarry Bank and join in with a jam packed programme of summer activities all inspired by the great outdoors. With a complete industrial heritage site to discover, acres of gardens and woodland to explore and two play areas, there are plenty of places to play.
Situated just south of Manchester, Quarry Bank is one of Britain's greatest industrial heritage sites, once home to a community of cotton mill owners, mill workers and child apprentices. Explore the family homes of owner and worker, run wild on the mill meadow and enjoy the summer gardens which are bursting with summer blooms, fruit and vegetables. Go on a nature adventure in the woodland estate, or join in with our summer activities to learn new nature skills.
And on those rainy days, step inside the huge Industrial Revolution cotton mill to hear the clatter and roar of the machinery, and watch the looms in action as the floors shake beneath your feet.
