Almost Open

January 23, 2015

The days are really racing by now, it feels like we just got back after Christmas but that was three weeks ago now and we are almost at the point of beginning to open up the rooms and set up the displays ready for opening to visitors on February 14th.

The first 9 days we are open is the Northumbrian school half term week. We open the property for free during that week, but as it’s so early we only open the ground floor of the house. While our visitors get to see some of the most historically important rooms like the Library and Dining Room, we will be beavering away upstairs getting the last rooms uncovered and set up.

This season we aim to have new children’s trails for each school holiday period as well as a varying range of family learning activities, to encourage families to return to Cragside numerous times over the year and experience the estate through the seasons.

The whole house will be open from February 24th. During term time we run school visits up to 1pm at which point the house opens to the public, but during school holidays and weekends the house opens from 11am. To check our opening times for the specific date you’d like to visit, please visit our website
