An "eggcellent" Easter awaits!
Date posted: 29 March 2019
The Walled Garden and Parkland reopen on Friday 5th April and we can't wait to welcome visitors back for a beautiful Spring - and with it, an "eggciting" Easter!

With only a few weeks to go until the Easter holidays we wanted to tell you all about our upcoming events, which we have no doubt will add a touch of magic to your Easter!

Our ever-popular Ryedale Community Weekend will take place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April. Ryedale residents are invited to explore the gardens at Scampston for FREE over the course of the weekend. All you will need is proof of address, such as a driving license or utility bill – a great option for those looking for a cheap family day out, and a chance to explore new additions to out Enchanted Forest. 

Whilst you are here for the Community Weekend, why not take part in our Spring Wildlife Day on Sunday 14th April? Wildlife experts from Natural England, RSPB, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and more will be offering some fantastic activities. Join us on this free family activity day and get hands-on with nature. Activities will include bird ringing, an insect safari and pond dipping. There will also be a variety of stalls to learn more about the local organisations that work to protect our countryside.

Our fabulous Fairy Godmothers will be returning with some magical stories, which will have your little ones enthralled! Children will be able to listen to stories before searching for enchanted creatures in the woodland. Storytelling will take place on Tuesday 16th and Friday 26th April. Admission will be free for all children in costumes on these days.

Due to their huge popularity, the Conservatory team will be running another Easter Fun Day on Friday 26th April, providing the perfect school holiday entertainment to give children the chance to get outdoors and creative, inspired by spring plants and animals. Come along and make a collection of lovely items to take home and participate in a nature walk across Scampston’s beautiful park. To book your child’s place contact or see the event page.

And if that’s not enough, there will also be the chance for kids to get crafty on Easter Monday (22nd April), with our Egg Painting and Rolling session! Take part in this traditional Easter activity and watch those brightly-coloured eggs roll. Usual entry fees apply and children must be accompanied by an adult.
