What's on?

We have an action-packed events diary to suit all tastes – including sporting events, music concerts, the Festival of Food & Drink, gardening workshops for the green-fingered, discovery club for young explorers and open air theatres.

Don't forget to...

  • Hire a bike and explore over 20 miles of cycle routes
  • Enjoy a hot drink or snack in the cafe after a wander around the lake
  • Stroll around the Pleasure Ground following in the footsteps of Dukes
  • Walk, ride or drive along Europe's longest double avenue of lime trees
  • Experience a taste of the past in the Walled Kitchen Garden
  • Visit the Chapel - our 'Cathedral in miniature'


Take a walk around the Park, explore our cycle routes or climb the spider web in the play park. If you're not feeling active, relax with a picnic by the lake or cook something tasty on our BBQ site.
