Over the Mayday weekend, Christine and I went to Newby Hall with my parents. It’s a privately owned manor house, which, along with its extensive gardens, is open to the public. I used to go there a lot when I was younger as there’s a brilliant adventure playground for kids, but this was my first visit there in a long time.
I’ve uploaded the photos that I took to Flickr. There’s a miniature railway with a train in the colours of UK train operator Grand Central, which was a little amusing, and at this time of year there are plenty of gorgeous flowers. Plus there’s a very nice farm shop as well.
It’s not quite as impressive as Chatsworth, but it’s still a good day out, and caters for almost everyone.
