Sewerby Hall and Gardens has now entered its winter period, which means free entry to the grounds until 22 October, and then again from 1 November until 25 March, 2022. (Charges will apply during the October half term holidays).
The Clock Tower CafÃ© and the zoo are open daily, offering opportunities to see the new baby llama; Pickle the handreared new baby penguin; and Rosie, the world's oldest Humboldt penguin.
The house itself is open at weekends, including the exhibition, 'A Brief History of Underwear', looking at how women's bodies in particular have been manipulated into shape over the years by means of underwear, through the corset, bustle, girdle, brassiere and crinoline.
Visitors can download QR codes in the house, zoo, and gardens to hear talks by the education officer and the curator, and to see films, and hear talks by the zookeepers. They can also download two free mobile apps: Love Exploring and What Was Here to follow games and trails during their visit.
Electric vehicle owners can now charge their vehicle whilst visiting Sewerby Hall and Gardens. Visitors can download the Hubsta app from the App Store or Google Play for free. They have the option of using either their mobile phone app or a fob to operate the EV charger. Using the EV charger is free for registered users.
