There’s fun to be had both outdoors and indoors at the National Trust’s Cragside this month.

Visitors can join free garden walks, from noon to 1pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, running until October 21, where a volunteer gardener will point out seasonal highlights.

Meanwhile, volunteer cooks in costume will recreate Victorian recipes on the recently-restored range of the Cragside kitchen each Wednesday, from 1pm to 3pm until October 28, subject to availability.

Ranger walks and ‘conservation in action’ activities are also available.
