Victorian Kitchen at Valentines Mansion & Gardens

The little ones will love dressing up the Victorian and Georgian costumes and really getting a feel for what it would have been like to live here.  These are available every open day for younger visitors to enjoy.

Visit on Bank Holiday Monday and you can take part in the Indoor & Outdoor Explorers trail.  Just £2 per child, they’ll have fun hunting around the house and beautiful gardens for hidden objects and clues before picking up a treat at the end.  11am-4pm, last trail 3pm.

The gardens are always a real treat, with lots to see and explore – have a look around the kitchen garden and see all the fruits and vegetables growing out there, take a walk along the Long Water, pose for a photo with our tree-carved owl and stop for an ice-cream at the Gardener’s Cottage Café – you’ll have a great day out at Valentines Mansion.
