Family visits to Claremont Landscape Garden
There’s plenty of family fun to be had on a visit to Claremont Landscape Garden. From climbing the Belvedere Tower, to exploring our play areas and going back in time in the Thatched Cottage, Claremont is a great place for families.
Baby-changing facilities are available in the toilet block outside the pay barrier and you're welcome to breastfeed. A buggy- and wheelchair-friendly path takes you around the circumference of the lake, and there are covered seats and benches throughout the garden.
Claremont used to be the playground of princesses and now it can be yours too. Our play area is great for young children whi are learning to explore and become more adventurius. It's located right by our Grab and Go Hut, so you can relax with a cup of coffee while the children play.
We have also recently opened Badger's Basecamp, a den building site on The Mound, perfect for older children.
Nine-pin bowling alley
We've re-imagined the Duke of Newcastle's original temple in miniature close to the same site, so you too can enjoy a game that has been played at Claremont over the years. Just borrow a ball from the kiosk for a £10 deposit, read the instructions and get bowling.
Travel back in time with our collection of Georgian and Victorian themed outfits, available for you to try on inside the Cottage, open most days. Once you're suitably dressed, enjoy a taste of playtime in the past. There are games, toys, and picnic blankets for you to borrow. Just return them when you're finished.
If you're feeling peckish make sure to stop off in the café, where you can indulge in a delicious range of drinks, cakes, breakfasts and light lunches. Don't forget to ask about our children's snack packs.
There's plenty to do in the tea-room while you tuck in. We provide a selection of colouring sheets, crayons and children's books to help you keep the little ones entertained.
We also sell delicious hot drinks and snacks from Grab and Go Hut, which is right by the play area, so you can relax with a tea or coffee while the kids play.
