New Year, new ... ? As 2020 gets closer what new adventures and activities will you try out in the New Year? To help you out, we've put together a few ideas together to inspire you at Attingham from January onwards.

Capture Attingham

Be inspired by the beautiful views and parkland at Attingham. Whether you’ve had a new bit of kit for Christmas, are using a tried and tested favourite camera or just taking snaps with your mobile phone – this time of year is great to practice your photography. The crisp wintry mornings and warm early evening sunsets in the Deer Park along with backdrops of woodland and wildlife set the scene for that perfect photograph.

Get active outdoors

Is getting fit your New Year's resolution? If you're just starting out we have three great run routes for you to follow throughout the Deer Park, whether you want to start off walking, jogging or running. Signposted from the Deer Park Gate the routes let you take on a 1, 2 or 3 mile challenge.

Stay motivated with a goal: book your Night Run place

Stay motivated and sign up now, to our Night Run on Saturday 29 February, and illuminate the night sky at Attingham at this special evening event. It's your chance to grab your glow sticks and don your head torch and run through the grounds. See what all the fun is about!

Signs of spring: Snowdrop Watch

From late January to February, watch out of the first signs of spring as the snowdrops begin to raise their heads and begin to peek through the woodland floor. Pick up a leaflet from Visitor Reception from February to find the best places to see the snowdrop displays in the woods around the Mile Walk.

Give volunteering a go

Do you want to do something amazing and help make a difference? Volunteering at Attingham is flexible, with roles with a regular volunteering commitment once a week or so, at special events, or as part and parcel of your general visits to us .
Want to volunteer on the same day every week? No problem.
Want to be able to get involved just once a month? That's great too!
With roles indoors or out, volunteering is a great way to try something new, learn new skills and make new friends.
