Arrived 3.55pm expected to pay full price of £7.50 each even tho' only wanted to walk in parkland . Should have some scale of pricing to allow for this type of visit. Have been Lotherton hall many times and always enjoyed visit. Disappointed today.

Where was the Easter activities very disappointed, taken 3 children aged 12,14 and 15 but was not offered any activities or saw any other than a colouring sheet. Enjoyed the refurbished bird enclosure and the penguins a really plus.

No unfortunately not that I know of. They sometimes have Events through the year and maybe during those there may be one. The bird of prey centre at Burn Hall nr Tollerton is excellent and very interactive.

By bus: Bus numbers 64 and 64A go to Aberford from Leeds City Centre. There is then an approximate 20-30 minute walk.
