February half-term at Basildon Park

Children on a trail

February half term is a great time to get out and about. Pick up a half term trail from the 15 - 23 February for £2 in Visitor Reception and go on a wildlife adventure in the parkland. With hundreds of acres to explore, play stations to find in the parkland and our play area for little ones, there's plenty to keep the little ones occupied.

Go on a trail 

Get all the family together and explore the great outdoors this February half-term at Basildon Park. The weather may not be great but there's so much to see out in the parkland with our half term trail to explore. Darcy the Dormouse has woken up too early from hibernation and needs your help finding her way back home. Follow the clues to go on an outside adventure, with a prize to collect from the shop when you've finished. Trails are £2 each from Visitor Reception, normal admission applies.

Den Building

If you follow the way-marked walks you'll come across a sheltered dell in the woods where there's all kinds of materials to make the perfect shelter for you and your friends. Walk across the balance logs without toppling off and you'll definitely deserve a tea-room treat.

Parkland walks

Head out on one of the four way-marked walks for some quality time with your loved ones. Look out for robins and red kites flying above you, or see if you can spot some snowdrops blooming.

Tea-room treats

Pay a visit to the tea-room where there will be array of sweet treats and hot drinks to warm up after a busy day of fun activities.


We have baby changing facilities on the property, and accessible toilets near Visitor Reception and by the mansion. For more access information, please visit 'Facilities and Access' on our website homepage.
