Viking adventure

FAMILIES can experience the chaos and adventure of the Viking age at Wallington.

They can try on helmets and chainmail, hear tales of heroic warriors and deeds, learn to read and write runes, follow the trail about Viking voyages, help to build a Viking longship and meet Wallington’s Viking, Egil Scallithomsen.

This event is being held on Saturday and Sunday, between 11am and 4pm. Normal admission charges apply.

Also on Saturday, people can join the estate’s gardener for a summer’s evening tour of the Walled Garden, followed by light refreshments in the conservatory.

This will take place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Meet at the Clocktower at 6.20pm.

Tickets, priced £10, must be booked in advance on 01670 773600. Dogs on leads are welcome.
