Gift Shops to browse offering pocket money treats along with high quality local crafts, gifts and homeware. Some attractions boast Farm and Specialist Shops with a range of local grown produce and hearty fayre.
Events are staged throughout the year from Flower Festivals to Car and Steam Rallies and Period Re-enactments. Relax in the grounds to Band and Jazz Concerts, Dram, Opera productions and major Concerts.
Spectacular Room Settings and Art Collections in many houses with pieces from earlier periods through to the more modern. Some are significant Museums in their own right as well as offering exhibitions and artefacts relating to the Social History of our region.
