We have prepared lots of things to do during the summer holidays. We want to help you to tick off your list some of the 50 things to do before you're 11¾.  Hunt for bugs in our garden, develop your den-building skills or track animals around the parkland. Don't forget there will be craft activities in the Old Kitchen too. 

Our Great Ball Run is at Basildon Park for the whole summer season.  Race your friends to see who can be the first to complete the challenges.  From 26 Apr until 7 Sept, kits cost £3. Normal admission applies.
