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.
Summer Reading Challenge at Croome
The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year and is a national scheme produced by The Reading Agency delivered by libraries. Each year there is a new theme and in 2017 libraries everywhere will be celebrating around the theme of Animal Agents accompanied by Tony Ross' wonderful illustrations.
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.
Borrow a free explorer rucksack from reception full of fun activities for all the family.
When you go down to Croome today, you might just spot the elusive Croomealoop who loves to explore the parkland.
Can you use your explorer backpacks to find him? You might just meet some other creatures along the way. If you catch a glimpse, create a nature collage and you could win a piece of yummy cake in our canteen.
