Visitors to the town's English Heritage site will roam around the grounds and gardens to find games and activities inspired by soldiers, Victorians and medieval monks.

Find out quirky facts along the way, tackle playful puzzles and see what it takes to get moving like people from the past.

Ella Harrison, Events Manager at English Heritage, said: “Our adventure quests are packed with puzzles and activities to get the whole family moving, and are just the thing to shake off the winter blues this half term.
