Gibside is an 18th century landscape garden that’s a haven of adventure and activity.
The wooden fortress at The Strawberry Castle Adventure Play Area is the ideal place for knights, kings, queens, princesses and princes to flock too. Fly high on the swings; zoom down the zip wire and scramble in the water and sand. The Nature Playscape was created from materials found on the Gibside estate and is the perfect place to crawl through tunnels, balance across log bridges and clamber over tree trunks.
Put your balance and strength to the test as you make your way from one tree to another on the Low Ropes Challenge, or build a den using fallen natural material on the grounds in the West Wood Activity Area – remembering to dismantle it and ‘leave no trace’. If all that activity has given you an appetite then the Gibside pub is serving until 9pm, which will go down well with a fresh made-to-order pizza.
Gibside knows how to do a great family day out!
