We'll be adding stories, activites and other Tyntesfield related content to this page regularly, so even if you can't visit this spring, you'll be able to learn a little bit more about this special place.

Details of colouring sheets

Alhambra inspired colouring

William Gibbs traveled extensively in the Hispanic world, and brought back many souvenirs. We've created some colouring sheets inspired by tile designs in the Alhambra Palace, illustrated in a book in Tyntesfield's library. Print at home and colour in - we'd love to see your designs on our social media accounts.

The secret world of treetops 

Taking time away from his expeditions to the Amazon, professional tree climber James Aldred leads presenter Jo Dyson on a treetop adventure in the slightly less exotic garden at Tyntesfield in Somerset.
