Get youngsters out and about this summer with fun activities at Oakwell Hall Country Park in Birstall.

About Oakwell Hall:

Oakwell Hall is furnished as a family home in the 1690s and offers visitors a real insight into a post-English Civil War household. The site also includes over 100 acres of country park, a visitor centre, gift shop, nature trail, picnic sites and playgound.

So we think it makes it the perfect place for kids to have fun this summer…
