My Recent Adventures Part 3 – Hanbury Hall

My first adventure with my family once I got to my parents 3 weeks ago was to Hanbury Hall, a National Trust site in Worcestershire…

Hanbury Hall 1

Here are some of the pictures I took of things that caught my eye as we wandered round…

Hanbury Hall 2

The details in the wrought iron work on the front gate was beautiful!

Hanbury Hall 3

This clock tower and weathervane looked really pretty atop the hall.

I noticed this structure by the front gate which captured my attention, especially the stained glass window and tiles inside…

Out of all the paintings around Hanbury Hall, this is the only one I photographed. Something about her really appealed to me, still not quite sure exactly what though.

They had some really nice pieces of crockery in the different rooms. Take a look below at the ones I thought stood out…

Even though I don’t drink tea, I quite fancy having a little tea set like this – so ornate!

Out beside the children’s play area they had a little spot where you can build your own wigwam. Here are some of the ones that other people had made…

There were some pretty flowers in the courtyard and gardens as well…

We didn’t have enough time to look around all the gardens, but I thought the structure in one of them was really cool…

This was the first of many trips with my family, and it was great fun! We had a lovely afternoon, with a cream tea in the upstairs tea rooms. And it was somewhere my Step-Dad had wanted to go for a long time, so it was great to see him enjoy it!
