Burton Constable Launches First Digital Trail

We're thrilled to have visitors on site again as Burton Constable's grounds and Stables Kitchen reopen, celebrating the occasion with free entry for Blue Light Card holders and children (age under 16).

 

New Digital Tour

As well as launching new interpretation panels and kid's activities for families, we're delighted to be able to announce the launch of our first ever digital trail, produced in partnership with East Riding Archives and with audio commentary from the Hall's curator.

Download the What Was Here app for your guide around the parkland,with historical images for you to view alongside today's stunning vistas and with a narrated guide to the history of the landscape you're exploring.

 

Compare past and present with the swipe of a finger, or simply tune in to the audio guide to enjoy hearing more about the sights you see as you walk.

 

New Walking Trail Around the Grounds

 

Those on site will soon discover that the grounds have more to offer than ever before, with a new trail exploring the evolution and conservation of this beautiful and peaceful landscape.

 

Our new Little Explorers trail running alongside these new stories around the site mean that there truly is something for everyone!

We know that during the pandemic outdoor spaces and fresh air have become more important for people's wellbeing and peace of mind than ever. Our grounds entry will grant you (and your dog) access to over 300 acres of beautiful nature, for some much needed escapism and exercise.

By signing up for our Annual Pass you could reclaim your day's admission fee and revisit the site as often as you like for the year with no added cost!
