Victorian festival at Tyntesfield
We're turning the clock back over a hundred years at Tyntesfield this May; falcons, soldiers, engineers and even Queen Victoria will be paying us a visit.
Every weekend in May we'll be playing host to new guests from the Victorian period.
Saturday 29 April - Monday 1 May
To kick off our Victorian extravaganza, we're pleased to welcome back the dazzling bird of prey displays from The Falconry School with master falconer, Ben Long.
Saturday 6 - Sunday 7 May
What was life like in Queen Victoria's army? The rations the soldiers ate and the hardships they lived through while serving their country will be brought to life over this colourful, noisy and exciting living history weekend.
Saturday 13 - Sunday 14 May
Clip clop, clip clop... over this weekend, Tyntesfield will be filled with the sound of horses.
You can catch a ride on a very Victorian carriage pulled by two beautiful shire horses and imagine how the Gibbs got about the place at Tyntesfield.

Over the course of the weekend, our very own Victorian engineers and inventors will be descending on Tyntesfield to share tales of the Industrial Revolution and new fangled technology.
