Family fun – 19th-22nd April
Little Mary Eleanor Bowes, who grew up at Gibside in the 18th century, loved unusual plants. She collected brightly coloured plants and fragrant flowers to fill her own childhood garden. Follow in her footsteps to find the finest spring flowers.
The Easter bunny has left a trail of clues through the garden. Complete the trail and claim your Cadbury chocolate prize. On the trail you’ll discover spring flowers bursting into life. While you’re here keep a look out for red kites swooping across the Derwent Valley or venture into the woodland to immerse yourself in sweet-smelling wild garlic.
