We're proud to offer a fantastic day out for families, with plenty to see and do for visitors of all ages - all year round. Winter is a great excuse to get those woollies on and come for a family day out, whether you're conquering the structures in our play field, making wellie tracks in the snow or ticking off some of your 50 Things.
Think you could be a great detective? Explore our grounds with your family to find all of the jungle themed clues on our half-term trail and claim your prize. Trails are £2.50 per child and will be available Monday 17 - Sunday 23 February, 10am - 4pm.
Trusty's Tuesday Club
Take part in our family activities on Tuesdays during the holidays, where you and your little ones can have loads of fun and learn some new skills. Get green-fingered this February half-term and join us to help plant some trees - you can also plant a bean to take home.
On your marks, get set. . .
Go! Every Wednesday in the school holidays there's a chance to try out some sports and games. This February half-term, challenge your family and friends to old-fashioned sports day activities at our Community Games and make a medal to take home.
50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾
It's time to get our little ones back outdoors and enjoying nature: our list of 50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾ is a great way to find a fun activity, whatever the weather. From tree-climbing to hunting for bugs and getting messy in the mud, there's an idea for every visit, and at Attingham you can tick off over 20 of them.
Shoulder of Mutton play field
Are you brave enough to run through the Pipe Monster? Our Shoulder of Mutton playing field near the Orchard is a natural playground featuring loads of things to explore. There's also sports equipment you can borrow free of charge to try out table tennis, volleyball and more, and traditional swings for little ones. It's a long-term project which we'll be adding to all the time, so come along and let us know what you think.
Time to tick off:
6: Run around in the rain
Grab your wellies and come and enjoy some puddle splashing fun along our Mile Walk this winter.
15: Play in the Snow
Our favourite place to create snowmen on a snowy day is the Shoulder of Mutton play field
Borrow a telescope and look at the stars on our Jupiterwatch evenings (28 February - 2 March)
With so much wet and windy weather we can't run our planned half-term events or family trails on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 February: but we've still got plenty for you and your family to do the rest of half-term. Join us from Monday 17 February for half-term adventures - why not download our activity planner to plan your week?
