Cannon Hall Museum, Park and Gardens provides the perfect family day out.

This stunning Georgian country house offers a variety of children's activities such as crafts, trails and there's even baking sessions in the Victorian kitchen.

Built for the wealthy Spencer-Stanhope family, you can explore grand rooms filled with wonderful art and visit below stairs to see where all the hard work happened!

Discover 70 acres of rolling historic parkland and beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax, wander or play fun outdoor games. Little ones will also have a great time in the free all weather play area.

The hall is also not to be missed and famed for its special family events so there's plenty going on all year round. From picnics and outdoor spectaculars during the summer to magical Christmas grottos in winter.

And right next door you've got Cannon Hall Petting Farm and Adventure Playground which is managed separately but a great way to spend the rest of your day!
