Go on a family adventure at Attingham

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! 
A new food trailer will be opening in the Field of Play in late spring/early summer 2020. It will serve barista coffes, teas and hot chocolate, cold drinks, savoury bakes and sandwiches, cakes and snacks. We'll update this page with more information once it has opened.

Cycle Policy 

Children aged 5 and under are welcome to bring tricycles and starter bikes (either no peddles or with stabilisers) when they visit. Standard bicycles are unfortunately not permitted in the Park regardless of the cyclists age, to keep the Park a safe environment for budding cyclists to learn in and for all visitors to enjoy.

Children aged 11 years old and under are welcome to explore the grounds on push/kick scooters. Battery powered scooters are not permitted in the grounds. 

If you're looking for somewhere for the whole family to cycle together head over to Comer Woods at the Dudmaston Estate (close to Bridgnorth). The Explorer Trail includes a 3.5km long  multi use trail perfect for families to explore whether walking, cycling or running.

Refuel in the Carriage House Café 

You'll find savoury snacks, cakes, biscuits and hot and cold drinks available daily from 9am at the Carriage House Café in the Stables Courtyard. Hot and cold lunches are also served there from 12pm, with savoury snacks, sandwiches, Attingham-made cakes and biscuits, hot and cold drinks available throughout the day.

Little ones will love our children’s food range. A children’s hot food menu can be found in the Carriage House Café, along with a 'pick n mix' selection of cold items. We're proud to welcome families, so please let us know if we can lend you a highchair or help you any other way

Take-away is available if you'd like to take a hot drink or snack with you on the way up to the Field of Play or on your walk. You can find our cafe opening times here.


School holiday fun

During the school holidays we host a variety of different family fun activities to get involved with and seasonal trails to follow around the grounds. Please visit our What's On page to see what events and activities are coming up, here.
