Half term fun at Sewerby Hall and Gardens

Mon, 11 Feb 2019

There will be a full programme of fun activities at Sewerby Hall and Gardens this February half term.

Visitors will be able to try the new Servant Trail in the house and gardens. In 1910 when Sewerby Hall was the private home of the Lloyd Greame family, it was also home to 11 Servants and even more lived on the wider estate or in Sewerby village. As visitors go round the Hall and Gardens, they can look out for the servants in the rooms where they worked, and match them to an object that they would have used. Then on Wednesday, 20 February and Friday, 22 February, there will be a chance to join the Servants for some Edwardian style spring cleaning, when the costumed interpretation team will be in the house with their feather dusters at the ready.

Monday, 18 February will see orienteering and archery as part of Active Coast 2019 – a chance to learn new archery skills with qualified coaches (for ages 8+) and navigate through the grounds of Sewerby Hall and Gardens with a fun orienteering challenge. Admission to the grounds is free of charge.

There will be a zoo activity on Tuesday, 19 February from 1pm to 2pm : come along and join the zoo team and put together some fruit and vegetable kebabs. The zoo keepers will then place them in the enclosures for the animals to eat.

There will be another zoo activity on 21 February from 1pm – 2pm : come along and join the zoo team and make nutritious fat balls for the local wild birds.

The house is open every day during half term from11.30am - 3.30pm (last admission 3pm). Admission is £3.50 for adults and £2.50 for children. A family ticket costs £11.

The gardens and Clock Tower Café are open daily from 9.30am, and the zoo is open daily from 10am. Admission to the gardens is free of charge until Friday, 29 March, 2019. Admission charges apply to the zoo: £3.50 for adults, and £2.50 for children.
