Admission to the gardens is free of charge but charges will apply for the house and the zoo.

Visitors can download the free 'Love Exploring' App to their mobile device before their visit to enjoy a variety of games and trails, including a Fairy Quiz, a Dinosaur Safari, and a Zoo Quiz. The app can be downloaded now at https://sewerbyhall.co.uk/outdoor-walks/

In addition, East Riding Archives have created a new, free app that turns smartphones or tablets into virtual ‘time machines’.  ‘What Was Here?’ uses historical photos from the archives, plotted onto a Google Maps base map, to show users literally ‘what was here’ at their location and elsewhere across the East Yorkshire region.

The app features heritage trails that guide users to various points of interest, where they can use their device’s camera to overlay the featured historic image on top of the modern scene and get a feel for how it looked in the past.  One such heritage trail is currently part of the Sewerby Hall and Gardens visitor experience.

Full details of the gardens, the Clock Tower Café, the house, the zoo, all half term events, and the two apps can be found at www.sewerbyhall.co.uk
