Young adventurers can enjoy a number of family trails through the grounds of this former Tudor palace as a £5.4m roof project draws to a close. Amble past a six-hundred-year-old oak tree, tiptoe inside a 17th century summerhouse and stride across a north lawn.
Out in Morgaston Woods, intrepid explorers can try their hand at den building, orienteering and geocaching. The ancient woodlands reveal traces of history if you know where to look. See if you can spot the remains of medieval fish ponds and a Second World War munitions storage site. For a chance to glimpse wetland wildlife, just sneak into the purpose-built bird hide. Inside the house, visitors of all ages can be transported back to 1535 when Henry VIII visited with Anne Boleyn. Head to the chapel to hear a Tudor mass soundscape or venture into the Saloon to discover a Victorian owner who had to replace The Vyne’s roof from 1842.
