Free event


Join National Trust Nostell for some creepy crawly fun this half-term. Set out on a fun family trail around the gardens, searching under rocks and logs on a hunt for creepy crawlies. Make a spider’s web and follow the giant snail trails.

Join in with creepy crafting on 2, 3 and 4 November and make yourself a spider buddy in the Orangery.

Continue your hunt for creepy crawlies in the house (up until 29 October) and get a close look at some of the pests that cause damage to old houses.

Climb and scuttle like a bug around the woodland adventure play area and strike a pose under beastly bugs photo arch. Warm up with a hot chocolate in the café!

The trail is free but usual admission applies.

Please note: the house is closed every Monday / Tuesday is closed for winter from 30th October.

Cost: Family admission from £12 – please see the website for full information on prices. Under 5’s are free. Parking £5.
