School Visits

School groups are very welcome at Burton Agnes Hall and there is plenty for children to see and do. We offer guided tours tailored to school groups, and the gardens enable a range of activities; the woodland walk holds fascination for children, with trees, plants and wildlife to spot; the walled garden has fruit, vegetables and exotic plants as well as giant board games and a maze! School children can run off steam in the woodland adventure playground, with its nine swings, huge tower with corkscrew slide, double zip wire and area for younger children.

Opening Times

The Hall is open daily from 1st April to 31st October and 14th November to 23rd December, from 11am to 5pm. Arrangements can also be made to open at 10.00 am if required.

Admission Charges 2022

A special concessionary rate is made for Primary and Junior school groups to the Hall and Grounds of £2.50 per person (adults and children). This should be paid at the reception desk on arrival and cheques can be made payable to 'Burton Agnes Hall Preservation Trust'.

Guided tours of the Hall for groups are available at no extra cost. These take approximately 1 hour for school groups. If your party has more than 30 people, it may be divided into smaller groups.

Upon request, tours of the Kitchen Garden can be arranged with the Head Gardener. These last approximately 20 minutes.


There are picnic areas adjacent to the car park and also in the grounds. School groups can also request use of the School Room above the Stableyard Gallery. Ice creams can be purchased for school groups for £1.50 per person; please call our cafe on 01262 490495 to arrange this before your visit. 


In the courtyard there is a Gift Shop, where souvenirs and gifts can be bought. We can create a school pack containing a pencil, sharpener and rubber for £2.50 each, which can be pre-ordered by calling 01262 490324.


There is access to the ground floor of the Hall for wheelchairs and a disabled toilet in the stableyard and in the adventure playground. The grounds, woodland and walled garden are wheelchair accessible.


There is a website available for teachers to use in preparation for visiting Burton Agnes Hall, with ideas for projects and activities with schoolchildren.

If you would like further information about school visits or would like to make a booking, please contact the Estate Office on 01262 490324 or email us at
