Little adventurers will love a trip to Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens from  23 March - 7 April,  10am – 4pm each day. 

Here they can discover the ten-point trail around the gardens armed with a trail sheet, pencil, bunny ears and a chocolate egg. Activities along the way also include hopscotch and skipping. If the children still have energy to burn head to the wilderness play area afterwards and finish the day with a treat from the restaurant or buy a memento from the shop.
