Be active in an inspirational setting

The Mile Walk is the shorted walking routes, and is a circular walk around the pleasure grounds of approximately one mile long, the Deer Park Walk is accessed off the Mile Walk route or from the front of the Mansion and can be extended to include the Woodland Walk and World War II Walk to create walks in length of around two to four miles.
Why not download one of our seasonal walks that follow these routes but highlight place of interest, or have a seasonal focus on nature.
Our well maintained paths are perfect for a gentle jog or more vigorous run. Try a self-led run around the park with our 1, 2 and 3 mile long run routes. They are way-marked in the Deer Park, but you can download them here to find out more and plan your route.
Orienteering is all about adventure and navigation. The aim is, using only a map and a compass, to move between control points and complete the course in the quickest time possible. Whatever your age, whatever your pace, orienteering is for anyone, anywhere who wants to improve their navigational skills and really get involved with their surroundings.

Organised sporting events at Attingham
Due to the Coronvirus pandemic our organised large sports events such as Night Run, Mad Jack's 10 (hosted at Attingham and organised by Shrewsbury Athletics Club) and Jog off your Jumper have either been cancelled or will not be taking place this year. We're hoping to hold these events again next year, provided we are able to do so safely and within government guidance.
