Hanbury Hall is full of fun adventures for all the family. There’s always lots to do to keep little ones busy in the great outdoors, from exploring the playground, to discovering the gardens in a seasonal trail.

Winter Folklore trail

Learn all about folklore and mythology associated with winter in a trail around the gardens and in a new display inside the Hall.

Follow the trail in the gardens and find out more about the folklore around snowdrops, Shrove Tuesday, birds and weather as you complete activities.

Inside the Hall, discover a new exhibition that explores the traditions and folktales that surround the winter months, from Wassailing and the legend of Jack Frost, to Gods of winter and weather superstitions.

The exhibition and trail are inspired by the magnificent painted staircase by Sir James Thornhill inside Hanbury Hall, which depict scenes from Greek mythology.
