Swinton Park runs a busy programme of courses throughout the year, both within the hotel, cookery school, parkland and walled garden. These include Themed Lunch & Dining Experiences such as Wine Appreciation Lunches, Garden Events such as Garden Design Days and Family Events such as Family Falconry & Nature Days to name but a few.
There are also numerous activities available within the hotel’s grounds and also surrounding Swinton Estate for those who love the great outdoors, such as fishing, falconry and walking.
Within a short drive of the hotel there are also numerous Yorkshire attractions, and we have selected some of the most interesting and highly regarded that you might want to visit on a day trip from the hotel.
Please note that if you would like to find out more about the Cookery School courses and events these are listed separately at the Cookery School section.

Thank goodness the sun has now come out and we seem to have finally put winter behind us! The Parkland has burst into bloom with clouds of blossom and a colourful carpet of daffodils and bluebells around the trees.
The Walled Garden is also getting going, with bright tulips swaying in the breeze and home grown asparagus bursting forth. Asparagus is at its most delicious when eaten closest to home, so dishes featuring home-grown asparagus are now on all our menus, including the bar and lounge. The garden furniture is out and soon it will be time for afternoon teas on the lawn and evening drinks on the terrace at sunset. English summertime at it’s best.
