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
Making your mark on the Field of Play
We're a year into developing the Field of Play, find out about what we've done so far and what's yet to come.
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 or Mansion Tea-room
You'll find savoury snacks, cakes, biscuits and hot and cold drinks available daily from 9am with the main café area opening at 10am at the Carriage House Café in the Stables Courtyard. Hot and cold lunches are also served there from 12pm, with savoury snacks, Attingham-made cakes and biscuits, hot and cold drinks available throughout the day.
The Mansion Tea-room is open daily until November from 12 noon until 4pm. With seating indoors and out, and an open fire for colder days, this is the perfect stopping point for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. A more traditional tea-room menu of cakes, biscuits, and sandwiches can be found here, alongside hot and cold drinks and ice-creams.
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
Take-away is available if you'd like to take a hot drink with you on the way up to the Field of Play or on your walk. You can find our tearoom and cafe opening times here.
