Throughout the year, events are held in the gardens and parkland at Swinton Park. These range from a Garden Lunch with lunch and a tour of the grounds or a Garden Design Day to a Children’s Activity Day or a Hunter Gatherer Day in the parkland.
The gardens and grounds at Swinton Park are a great attraction and are enjoyed by families, walkers and bird watchers, birds of prey and foraging enthusiasts and even alfresco diners.
For many years the grounds and walled garden had been left in decline, but since the Cunliffe-Lister family bought back the castle in 2000 they have been restored, the mastermind behind all of this being Susan Cunliffe-Lister. it is Susan who hosts the Garden Lunches and Garden Design Days, and she also conducts tours of the grounds for private groups.
