Walking in the Footsteps

Walking in the Footsteps

Details

Join one of our heritage volunteers on a fascinating guided walk of the parkland and learn about the legacy that landscape architect Capability Brown has left on the landscape here.

Discover the vision of Capability Brown at Scampston on a guided walking tour which will allow you to take in the beautiful vistas he created.

Led by our expert Heritage Volunteers, the walks are lively and informative. All proceeds from the walks go to support the work of the Heritage & Learning Centre at Scampston Conservatory.

The walks last approximately one hour and will take you across the parkland, so appropriate footwear is required.
