Things to do at Sewerby Hall and Gardens review
Sewerby Hall and gardens sit high on a cliff by the sea just a short distance away from Bridlington. There is a free car park at Sewerby Hall but you can also take the seasonal land train up there from outside Bridlington leisure centre. It’s a lovely family-friendly day out.
There is a zoo at Sewerby Hall. The zoo is actually more like a small wildlife park. It is home to birds, penguins, lemurs, goats, sheep, racoon dogs and a few other species of animal. The highlight is the penguins as they love standing right by the wall to look at you.
There is also a play area with swings, things to climb on, slides and a few other pieces of play equipment. The hall itself has activity trails for kids and there’s lots of rooms to look around. Quite a lot of the rooms are set out how they would have looked in the past and most rooms have interactive elements.
Sewerby Hall has some beautiful gardens with a walled garden currently with a Wizard of oz theme, There is also a putting green with 18 holes for a small donation and a woodland walk.
You can also look around the house. Quite a lot of the rooms are set out how they would have looked in the past and others have exhibitions in with interactive elements in most. We love the room where you can watch a video of Bridlington from the 1970’s. It has certainly changed over the years. There is also a play room for the kids with toys from the past including a magnificent dolls house.
