Family adventures


There’s a range of activities on offer at Attingham to keep little ones occupied during the school holidays. Search for clues as you explore the grounds on our themed family trails, or join Trusty's Tuesday Club this summer, where you can enjoy a tractor and trailer ride round the deer park and complete challenges to help track down a highway man.
