Attingham is the perfect place for a family day out. Whatever the season, there's plenty of adventures to be had; explore the Deer Park, discover the Field of Play, see what's growing in the Walled Garden, or imagine yourself living in the Regency Mansion. Whether you join us for one of our family events or you have your own self-led plans for the day, you're in for a day of fun and adventure at Attingham.

The Field of Play

The Field of Play is a hive of fun, activity and sport throughout the year. It's open every day (except for Christmas day) and has some traditional playground equipment including swings and some more unusual play areas such as the 'Pipe Monster' and areas to play sports. During the winter, depending on weather conditions, the field may get muddy so don't forget your wellies and warm clothes! From November to March the Greedy Pig is closed so please bring your own ping pong balls and shuttlecocks with you when you visit (during the winter some sports equipment may be unavailable due to weather conditions).

The Mansion Tea-room is open daily until November from 12 noon until 4pm.

Little ones will love our children’s food range. A children’s hot food menu can be found in the Carriage House Café and both the Carriage House and Mansion Tearoom have a selection of cold ‘pick and mix’ items including a choice of wraps, fruit juice and healthy snacks. We're proud to welcome families, so please let us know if we can lend you a highchair or help you any other way
