Scampston’s Spring Community Weekend is your chance to experience the Walled Gardens and Parkland in a different way – for free!

Now in its 5th year, this annual weekend is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our Ryedale residents for continuing to support our attraction. This year, there will be lots of free activities and fun for all the family. Come along and take part in our 30-minute taster sessions, including pond-dipping, mini-beast hunts and leaf-bashing.

The walled garden, hall gardens and parkland are open throughout both days to explore at your own pace. Our Garden Cafe will be serving delicious lunches and home-made cream teas throughout the weekend. Alternatively, come and bring your own picnic to enjoy in our parkland!

Scampston's Community Weekend is open to all Ryedale Residents who have a proof of postcode (free entry for up to 2 adults and 3 children per household).

Other things to look out for

This weekend is also a great opportunity to find out what we have going on for the rest of the season. Ever fancied booking onto one of our courses or workshops? Come along to the Conservatory for taster sessions and a chance to chat with some of our Course Leaders.

There will also be 30-minute taster sessions of our Family Wildlife Club, a NEW activity club on the first Sunday of every month, starting in May. Our sessions include:

Pond Dipping – come and explore the life living in our lakes and create your own zoo.

Bugs on Bushes – Explore the wildlife living in the trees, bushes and grasses with sweep nets and pooters.

Environmental Art adventures – come and have a go at the Japanese art of Hapa Zome (leaf bashing).

Little Birds and Woolly Things - Drop-in craft sessions for children in the conservatory, including poems and stories to enjoy.
