Attraction

Overview & description

Uniquely situated in a dramatic clifftop position with spectacular views over Bridlington and set in 50 acres of early 19th Century parkland, Sewerby Hall and Gardens offers something for everyone, from the magnificent gardens to the deep rooted heritage of the house.

Take a trip back to the early 1900s to see how the house would have looked. The exciting exhibition and events programme has something for the whole family. The Grade One listed House has been restored to its former glory as the family home of the Lloyd Greames, circa 1910, and has been furnished with exquisite items from the national collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum as well as items from significant local collections. At the same time, we have incorporated modern ideas regarding accessibility and interpretation into a traditional setting, creating a working ‘Edwardian’ kitchen, live interpretation and handling collections to allow visitors to interact more fully with the displays.

Costumed Interpretation takes place on Wednesday and Friday.

Hours Tours take place from Monday to Wednesday 11.30am and 1.30pm

2018 sees three new exhibitions in the west wing gallery. Musical memories: the world of Herman Darewski 24 March – 3 June, 1918: Duty Done! 9 June – 2 September and Magic in the Nursery 8 September – 25 November.

Also, don’t forget the permanent exhibition about Amy Johnson which features a short film about Amy’s journey to Australia.

The zoo is the place to keep the children amused, home to an exciting range of over 60 mammals and birds, firm favourites include the Eclectus Parrot, who is always keen to chat, the Humboldt Penguins splashing and swimming and the cute Raccoon Dogs.  New for 2018 is the animal feeding times. Lemurs 2pm, Coatis 2.15pm, Penguins 3pm, Goats and Alpacas 3.15pm

The gardens are a great place to visit whatever the season; with the Walled, Pleasure and Rose Gardens taking centre stage throughout the summer months. Why not take a stroll along the Woodland Walk and discover the hidden delights nature has to offer? Our children’s adventure playground has an exciting nautical theme which will appeal to children of all ages. If the children are feeling more energetic then why not purchase an orienteering pack with everything you need to map your way around the estate.

For sport-lovers there is a nine-hole pitch and putt golf course, 18-hole putting green, a FootGolf course as well as Crown Green Bowling.

The Clock Tower Café serves a wide range of hot and cold food including freshly ground coffee, daily specials, homemade scones and flapjack, cakes, sandwiches and soup. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are also available.
