Gibside covers a very large area so you can spend as long as you wish choosing the different trails to follow. We went to the chapel, enjoyed a few hilarious minutes on the low ropes activity course (at 61 I did better than my 12 year old Grandaughter!) and chose a shorter route past the lovely children's play area. It... More

Lots of nice green open space and walks. Very impressive chapel. Original walked garden has changed over the years & now no longer used as the car park. More suited to those who are active as tasks hours if one were to walk around the whole estate in a single visit. Worth return visits, especially for anyone who is local.

As a family we love Gibside, we are there nearly every day over half term and summer holidays, the kids love it! We take a picnic and the kids are safe in the play area, the additions such as the water and sand area is brilliant when the weather is hot. We have fantastic walks around the site and we... More

We decided to opt for the 5 mile wildlife walk right round the park and were so pleased that we did. We saw the main attractions in the park (monument, walled garden, chapel, play areas etc) but also witnessed wonderful views, wandered through woodland and also high up above the river. It wasn't an easy Sunday stroll but was delightful.... More

Went there with our 2 young grand children and our dog. We had been told that it was a very dog friendly place. It was very cold and there was some light sleet. We went into the cafe to have some lunch and to warm up and were told that dogs weren't allowed in. So my 3 & 5year old... More

Got the kids out for some fresh air which was great. Lovely walks and interesting things for the little ones to look at on the way as well as the history. Plenty carved and worked animal art work. Lovely trip.

Took the whole family there on Sunday afternoon and did the skyline walk. It's a beautiful place full of families having fun and a wonderful atmosphere everywhere. So relaxing. Picnics a must in the summer. We'll be returning again and again!

Recently moved to the north east and just joined the NT so decided we'd try this place first on a friends recommendation and as it was the only NT place fully open this time of year! I was looking forward to sampling the market after hearing great things on here but I must say I found it to be a... More
