The Year of the English Garden is being celebrated at Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens this bank holiday weekend.

There will be fun horticultural activities for all, from 11am to 5pm each day.

For little ones there’s the I-spy trail and the chance to plant your own sunflower to take home.

And for green fingered enthusiasts, you can take part in expert-led tours around Belsay’s stunning gardens, which come to life in a riot of spring colour at this time of year.

You can also join its own version of Gardeners’ Question Time and get hints and tips for your own plot.
