Sometimes the simplest things are the most rewarding: a walk through wintry landscapes, meeting friends old and new, flushed cheeks – and maybe even a hot freshly ground coffee at the end of it.

Introducing Social Sundays: a celebration of the simple things in life. Every Sunday in January and February, one of our friendly volunteers will be leading a walk through Raby’s Deer Park or around High Force waterfall. There’s no better way to discover our lush parkland and stunning landmarks than on foot, so wrap up warm and join us for an informal, accessible 45 minute walk with a group of like-minded people.

Come solo, bring your family or a friend (four-legged varieties on leads welcome, too) – the more, the merrier.

Social Sundays at Raby Castle Deer Park – Sunday 5th and 19th February starting at the horsebox ticket booth at 10am

 A walk-and-talk around Raby’s Deer Park is the ideal way to get your nature fix: think acres of ancient parkland, grazing deer and a backdrop featuring one of England’s finest medieval castles. Our friendly volunteer guide will be able to answer all of your Raby questions – and afterwards, feel free to pop into the Yurt Café for a coffee, sandwich or pastry, or browse in the Stables Shop.


Social Sundays at High Force Waterfall – Sunday 12th and 26th February starting at High Force Hotel at 10:30am

Or perhaps you’d like to discover one of England’s most impressive waterfalls? At High Force, experience the drama and power of a 21-metre cascade of white water tumbling into a gorge, with one of our knowledgeable volunteers leading the way. Afterwards, head back to High Force Hotel and cosy up by the open fires to enjoy a hot drink – included in the ticket price – and a bite to eat if you fancy it. You might even be tempted to stay for Sunday lunch… prebooking is advised please call 01833 622336

For Raby Members, tickets are just £2.70, and £5 for non- Raby Membership Holders.


Let’s blow those winter blues away for good.

Looking forward to welcoming you.
