For four days in the holidays we have some additional activities for children:
Learn more about how we care for the parkland at Burton Constable by taking a tour with the Grounds and Parkland Officer.  Meet up with him in the Carriage House at 11:30am and again at 2:00pm for a walk lasting approximately half an hour.

Then take part in nature-themed activities in the Carriage House 11am to 3pm each day, do some colouring or painting, plant seeds, make a bird feeder or even take home a stick friend.

All activities are free to take part.

The Burton Constable Whale is featured in Herman Melville's famous novel Moby Dick. 

Today the Burton Constable Whale is nicknamed 'Constable Moby'
