Join us as we explore the amazing coastline on the doorstep of Sewerby Hall & Gardens. Help us as we try to identify the variety of flora and fauna, seaweed, shells and other animals as we investigate ecology on the beach.

Try your hand at beachcombing then create some interesting art from what you have found and discover more about the amazing beach you are on and why it is a ‘No Take Zone’.

Visitors can learn about the local geology and try to identify the different types of rocks you can find on the beach.

There will also be a range of activities taking place in the Orangery at Sewerby Hall (standard entry charges apply) including seaweed and shell identification, investigation into litter on beaches and in the ocean and how the local coastal area has been affected over time and the impact of climate change and much more!
