Last Friday we headed over to Brodsworth Hall and Gardens for their Enchanted Brodsworth event, and we had such a wonderful evening.
Brodsworth Hall is a English Heritage property in Doncaster, South Yorkshire and despite it being less than an hour away from where we live, it’s somewhere we’d never visited before.
Brodsworth Hall was built and the pleasure gardens laid out, in the 1860s, as an up-to-date new home for the Thellusson family and their servants. It survived with remarkably few changes until taken on by English Heritage in 1990. The gardens have been restored, and the faded and worn interiors gently conserved, telling the story of the changing fortunes of the people who lived and worked here.
The Enchanted Brodsworth event is a chance to explore the grounds after dark, which are illuminated by thousands of fairy lights. It’s absolutely magical and the perfect winter family evening out.
When we arrived we were greeted by a huge talking tree, which of course the children loved. My favourite part was the illuminated archway, which is really quite impressive. The kids favourite part was the fairy garden where we were able to hear the fairies chattering!
As you come to the end of the enchanted trail you’ll find traditional fairground rides as well as food stalls, which is the perfect way to finish off a magical evening at Brodsworth.
If you’re local I would highly recommend visiting Brodsworth Hall, and especially the Enchanted Brodsworth event. We are already looking forward to going back next December and hopefully in the summer too!
I put together a little video of our evening at Brodsworth which you can watch here…
Here are a few photos that I snapped at Enchanted Brodsworth…
