For a fun free day out, head to Sutton Bank National Park Centre, which has been given a hi-tech makeover. A fascinating exhibition will take you on a journey through time to discover how this iconic landscape was created and the influence it's had on people through the ages. The new Lime & Ice exhibition tells the story of how our iconic landscape and view came to be through the dramatic action of ice age glaciers. Find out about millions of years of Sutton Bank in the making through a stunning CGI film, narrated by earth historian Professor Aubrey Manning or read at your leisure about some of the amazing landscape features around the area.
