Family fun this autumn at Croome
Enjoy some autumn fun at Croome with lots to keep the family entertained.
Apple Bobbin' - Family Trail
20 October to 4 November
We have a variety of apples in our orchard. Go in search of some of them hidden in the park. Apple bobbin' is traditionally played at Halloween and was enjoyed by the Georgians. Here at Croome we grow a variety of apples in our orchards some of which will have been historically used for such a pastime. Have fun searching the grounds for all the different varieties and don't forget to collect your prize! £2 per trail.
Potter and Ponder Map
Our new sensory ‘Potter and Ponder’ map encourages visitors with disabilities to experience the beautiful parkland using touch, sight, sound, taste, and smell during their visit.
Natural play area
Discover the natural play area, the perfect place to sit and enjoy the summer sun at one of the many picnic benches scattered around. Children can test their balance on tree trunks, build dens, sit on the wooden throne and scramble over logs amongst the trees.
RAF themed playground
Children can let their imagination run wild in the RAF themed playground with a control tower, scramble net, bunker, jeep, slides and swings.
See the birds feasting at the feeders and see if you can spot a cheeky squirrel.
The Visitor Centre is a great place to pick up a free spotter sheet or 50 Things scrapbook with lots of ideas to do on a rainy day.
See the giant model in the basement of the house - take it apart and see if you can rebuild it.
Have fun colouring in the activity room at the house or try modelling your own landscape.
