Family fun

Whatever the season there's always lots of family fun to be had at Calke.

With 600 acres of parkland, beautiful gardens and a fascinating 'un-stately' home to explore there's something to capture every imagination.

We've also got plently of events on all year round, so come along and bring the whole family.

Child's play

Get active in the playground

Don’t forget to visit the playground before you leave.

Situated right next to the ticket office off the car park, it’s a perfect opportunity for a bit of last minute fun before you say goodbye to Calke.

50 things

We know it's hard to get off the sofa and into the outdoors.

As part of our national campaign we've tracked down the 50 coolest outdoor things to do before you're 11¾.

See what you could get up to in our Park.

Hunt for treasure

Geocaching truly is a 21st century treasure hunting game.

Use a GPS-enabled device to discover the geocaches in the park.

We have two devices for you to borrow before 2pm, you just need to leave your keys as a deposit and your adventure begins.
