Garden Explorers takeover this half term at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House
Elizabeth Gaskell’s House will be giving families the opportunity to explore the beautifully re-established Victorian gardens of this historic house over half term with a new Gardeners’ Explorers Trail.

Running from 31 May – 2 June, the trail will encourage children of all ages to discover hidden spaces, wildlife and plant life in the garden. The gardens have been re-created using many of the plants mentioned in Elizabeth Gaskell’s writing and offer a window into the gardens of the past.
