Ages: 0-12

Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

At Crook Hall and Gardens the beautiful gardens include: The Secret Walled Garden, Shakespeare Garden, Cathedral Garden and The Silver and White Garden. Plus kids will love the playful cotoneaster meadow maze, just be sure to go in with the small ones as it's trickier than it looks!

Whilst visiting Crook Hall, stroll around the moat pool, ramble through the orchard, enjoy the wildflower meadow and relax and enjoy a home-made cream tea by the fountain in the pretty little courtyard.

Indoors you can imagine life in the Mediaeval hall and enjoy a log fire while you refresh yourselves then tip-toe into the haunted Jacobean Room… and run out! The Grade 1 listed Medieval Manor House is largely retained for functions and events so don't go expecting to explore it all or go on a really wet day, as the indoor side is pretty limited: you'll mainly be here to enjoy the many gardens!

And it's all nice and close to Durham Market and The Gates Shopping Centre, so you can take the kids for a wander through there afterwards!
