Summer fun in the Midland sun

Children's holiday activities

During the local school holidays we hold trails and craft activity days every Monday and Wednesday. For just a small additional charge you can become a detective for the day following one of our popular garden trails, collecting all the answers to the clues to claim a prize. Get crafty with a related activity which will see you make something to take home and treasure. A different theme every week ensures little ones will never be bored and will always find something new to learn at Dudmaston. Check out our summer schedule here

Play area

Two boys on the swing in the play area at Dudmaston

Children can let off steam in our adventure play area while you sit nearby and enjoy a well deserved cup of tea and a slice of cake. Bring all their friends and see just how many people a basket swing can hold; and then watch as they become mountaineers and climb the tower face. With equipment for all ages to enjoy this is sure to be a popular place for the children to visit.
