There’s lots to do for adults and children. Why not:

  • Have an adult or family tour to discover the history that happened on your doorstep
  • Meet Bess of Hardwick or Mary Queen of Scots (in the discovery centre for one week only)
  • Get lost in the lavender labyrinth
  • Dress up as a prince and princess
  • Pretend you’re at the seaside and build a sandcastle in the giant sandpit
  • Get stuck in the brand new stocks!
  • Discover giant wooden games dotted throughout the site.
  • Make a historical craft sometimes joined by a costume character
  • Imagine the ruins are a castle and needs defending from attack!

When you have finished exploring bring a blanket for a picnic (there will b hot and cold drinks and snacks on sale in the Discovery Centre) or wander down the hill to the Rhubarb Shed Cafe to tuck into a tasty meal enjoying the Pictorial Meadows as you go.
