FAMILY FUN

Indoor & Outdoor Play

A small outdoor play area with timber climbing frames and animals is located next to the Orangery picnic area. Undercover play areas can be found in the Indoor Riding School so your little ones can let off steam whatever the weather. Older children can make use of the basketball hoop and play table tennis in the Indoor Riding School. Table tennis & basketball equipment can be collected from the ticket desk in the Gift Shop for a returnable £10 deposit. For families visiting the house, we have a selection of new family activities from object handling boxes to a children's dress-up room. 

The Grounds

Here at Burton Constable Hall we know how much kids like to explore and play. So, we have two perfect trails for you and your family!

The new Parkland Animal Trail is perfect for younger children as the animals are lowdown, easier to find and it will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. For older children and adults alike the Parkland Waymarker Trail is an ideal way to explore the grounds and parkland surrounding the Hall. Each waymarker highlights a different parkland feature and takes approximately 1 hour to complete. Every child taking part in a trail will receive one of our new Burton Constable Hall Trail Blazer Badges featuring the Burton Constable Whale. Collect all the family trails information at the start of your visit from the ticket desk in the Stables Gift Shop.

Giant garden games and a croquet set are free to use on the Orangery Lawn and please feel free to play ball games on the large grassed areas at the South and East of the Hall. Croquet equipment can be collected from the Ticket Desk for a returnable £10 deposit.

Because of the risk of accidents to babies and young children it is not possible to take large prams, pushchairs or baby back carriers around the house and these must be left in the entrance hall. Front slings are permitted and these along with reins for toddlers are available for loan from the entrance hall.

Toilet and Baby Changing Facilities

All toilet and baby changing facilities can be found in the stable courtyard. Unfortunately there are no public toilets in the house.

Did you know?
Afternoon tea was created by the Duchess of Bedford in the late 18th century. She invited friends to join her for an afternoon meal of small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, sweets and, of course, tea. The practice was so popular that it was quickly adopted by other social hostesses
