Looking for something to do with the kids this summer? Here are 6 reasons to check out Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

1) Visit the zoo

If you love cuddling up to cute animals and learning fascinating facts about wildlife, the Sewerby Zoo is for you.

Meet a whole host of characters, including sweet Shetland ponies, fuzzy alpacas, crazy capuchin monkeys and adorable pygmy goats. The friendly Humboldt penguins are a popular attraction among families too.

The menagerie also houses several species of endangered pheasant.


2) The house dates back to the 1700s

Meanwhile, history buffs will enjoy wandering around the beautiful Edwardian house. Recently refurbished to look exactly how it did in the early twentieth-century, Sewerby Hall is full of personality.

The building has its own gatehouse, as well as some stunning rooms and conservatories to discover. Children will be in awe as actors perform as servants going about their daily duties.


3) You can explore 50 acres of parkland

The warmer months are ideal for getting outside and enjoying the natural world. Sewerby has it all, with an ancient woodland and tranquil formal gardens.

Take a picnic and take in the gorgeous views of vibrant blooms, perfectly-trimmed hedges and the country’s oldest Monkey Puzzle tree.


4) There’s a place to stay

Staycations are perfect for young families that don’t want to travel far to spend quality time together.

Sewerby offers a range of cosy holiday cottages. With it being just a short trip away from Bridlington, the Hall makes a great base for exploring the coast too.

5) Tuck into cake at the end of the day

The Clock Tower Café is the ultimate pit stop for a rest and refresh. You can choose from an array of light bites or indulge in afternoon tea, which is served every first and third Tuesday.


6) Summer 2017 is packed full of fantastic events

Not only does Sewerby Hall offer all this, it also regularly puts on wonderful events to suit everyone’s tastes.

Under 5s can immerse themselves in a Beach Explorers session. Here they can play with sand, water, shells and pebbles, as well as listen to stories and make things to take home with them.

There are also several music events and workshops throughout July and August. Meanwhile, the whole family can get involved in shelter building and classic game days.


“This year, we have put together an amazing programme of events and activities to keep families of all ages amused and entertained all summer long,” enthuses Marie Gascoigne, Facility Manager at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

“We have at least one event every day during the school holidays. From picnics to penguins, a trip to Sewerby Hall is a great day out this summer!”

You can find Sewerby Hall and Gardens on Church Lane, Sewerby, near Bridlington in East Yorkshire. Entry is £7 for adults, £4.90 for children and £22 for a family of four (two adults, two children).

All events are free with a ticket to the Hall. To find out more information, please visit the Sewerby Hall and Gardens website.
