Discover the treasures in Elizabeth Gaskell’s garden this summer with your family and friends.

The Elizabeth Gaskell’s House Family Garden Trail will launch on Wednesday 20 July and run throughout the school summer holidays on open days.

Learn fun facts, make discoveries and find fun things to do as you make your way around the beautiful Victorian garden. Head onto the grassy lawns to enjoy a selection of traditional Victorian games, or sit down and enjoy a picnic.

You can find your way around the trail using QR codes and your mobile phone. Or if you prefer, you can pick up a paper version of the map.

Families will also be able to take home a special pack of Elizabeth Gaskell House wildflower seeds.

The Family Garden Trail is a free activity for visitors to Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, which is open every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 11:00am to 4:30pm. Entry is £6.50 for adults and free for children under 16, when accompanied by an adult. Tickets can be pre-booked up to a month before.
