Easter Family Fun

Bring everyone along for Egg-cellent family fun this Easter holidays and be inspired with our crafty cup chicks and beautiful bunnies at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House. Make your own craft character to take home in our Servants Hall – and the best bit is, there’s no mess to clear up!

Visit the House and let the kids get stuck in making their own Easter animal. There’s craft and colouring to try, plus our Cranford the Cat Trail around the house – all included in admission.

11am – 4.30pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays 31 March – 11 April and included in admission (last entry 3pm). Entry is £7.50 for adults and free for children under 16, when accompanied by an adult.  Tickets can be pre-booked up to a month before by booking here.

Elizabeth Gaskell’s House is run by Manchester Historic Buildings Trust (charity no. 1080606) and all money gained through private tours, talks, room hire and ticket sales goes towards the ongoing maintenance and running costs of the House. If you would like to support the House with an additional donation you can do so via this link.

Family Friendly

We've got a house...it certainly is a beauty...I must try and make the house give as much pleasure to others as I can.’

Elizabeth Gaskell, in a letter to her friend Eliza Fox in 1850.
