Hanbury Hall, a popular visitor destination in Worcestershire, is set to offer a week of family-friendly activities for May half-term.

The historic site near Droitwich Spa will host an array of experiences for visitors of all ages, spanning from a flora, fauna and folklore trail, a series of storytelling sessions, and guided tours exploring 300 years of history.

The flora, fauna and folklore trail is scheduled every day from May 25 to June 2 and costs £2 per trail.

On the trail, participants can engage with the animal and plant life at Hanbury Hall, solving an animal word search puzzle and spotting animal footprints throughout their journey.

Storytelling sessions will be hosted by author Ruth Goddard in the second-hand bookshop on several days.

Visitors on May 25, 26, 29 and June 1 and 2, can listen to Ms Goddard read from her book 'Blossom and the Bees' and other children's stories while sitting on bean bags in the courtyard.

Ms Goddard's books, along with various pre-loved titles, will be available for purchase in the bookshop.

Inside the hall, visitors can learn about the building's past by looking at the wall and ceiling paintings.
