Kids half term activity


This May, bring everyone along for family fun over the half-term holidays at Elizabeth Gaskell's House. The kids can make their own crafty masterpiece, there's dressing-up, colouring, hands-on activities and our popular Cranford the Cat trail around this magnificent historic house. Plus explore the early summer flowers and QR code trail in the garden.

Visit the House and let the kids get stuck in making their own crafty masterpiece in the Servants' Hall. And the best bit is – all activities are included in admission and children go free with a paying adult.

Enjoy some time outside with nature in Elizabeth Gaskell's House' beautiful garden. There's room for the kids to run and you are welcome to bring a picnic. Try the garden trail by scanning the QR codes to learn fun facts, play games, tell jokes and find out ways you can help to support wildlife and reduce your carbon emission at home.

The craft activity is available 11am – 4pm (last entry 3pm) on open days between 26 May – 2 June and included in admission.
