February half term fun at Blickling Estate

Children in wellies walking on a muddy path

Throughout half term, come and join us for adventures with Percy The Park Keeper and his animal friends. Whether you fancy exploring the house, getting active outdoors or staying warm with a hot chocolate, there's plenty of fun for all the family...

Pick up an activity pack*

We've put together a variety of activity packs for children, full of colouring, reading, writing and activities to help you discover more on the estate. The packs range from 0-4 years, 5-7 years and 8-10 years and you can choose whether you're a nature explorer, a budding author, a curious creature or an art adventurer. 

*Activity packs are available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Explore the garden

Enjoy playing in the gardens and tick off some of your '50 things to do before you're 11¾'. Explore the secret tunnels for a game of hide and seek, make a human sundial, balance on logs and even touch a sticky tree, there's lots to find in the gardens. Keep your eyes peeled for a sprinkling of snowdrops and beautiful scented hellebores in the Dell and Orangery garden.
