Things to do at Burton Constable Hall & Grounds review
In the countryside north of Hull in East Yorkshire there is a large Elizabethan country house which you can look around. There’s also grounds of around 300 to explore which were designed by Capability Brown.
We really enjoyed our visit to the Grade 1 listed house. There’s plenty to see with some really opulent rooms. There are trails for the kids and sometimes these are themed depending on the time of year. We took part in one where you have to find different items around the house, it was quite a challenge. The staff are friendly and very informative, we learnt a lot about the family history connected with the house.
In the stables, they have set it up how it would have looked in the past. You can even climb the clock tower and see where the grooms and stable boys would have slept. There’s also a skeleton of a sperm whale in one of the stables.
They don’t really have a play area at Burton Constable. There’s a few small wooden items for smaller children near the orangery but nothing for older kids. If you visit in the school holidays they will usually have themed trails etc. on for the kids around the grounds and in the hall.
There is around 300 acres of parkland to explore, although access is not always possible due to grazing cattle. If you want to spend longer exploring you may want to ring ahead to find out what is accessible.
