Families

There’s lots to see and do with your family here on the Middleton Estate…

See, touch and smell our historic buildings and run wild through our Glade and along our Nature Trail. Head off on perilous adventures with our arctic explorer board game and play 18th-century musical instruments in the Great Hall. Orderic the Owl’s activity sheets are available daily, free of charge.

Activities to do at home

We have some excellent FREE* activities for your children to enjoy and learn from. Help Middleton Hall’s mascot, Orderic the Owl solve puzzles and search for answers!
