Percy and friends invite you on a winter adventure. Help Percy track down his missing tools and give nature a helping hand along the way. There's activities and challenges galore to keep the whole family entertained at our places in the South East.
Embark on Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trail for families in Surrey - at Claremont Landscape Garden, Hatchlands Park and Polesden Lacey. The house at Polesden Lacey is decorated for Christmas with evergreens, sparkling decorations and enchanting woodland animal scenes. At Hatchlands Park the house is decorated for a traditional family Christmas.
All across Sussex we are bringing festive traditions to life at our country houses, atmospheric gardens and wintry countryside.

We're looking forward to Christmas in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and can't wait to welcome you. We're Christmas-decked and ready to go, so set aside some dates for seasonal sparkle and Christmas treats.
Escape to our Hampshire places for festive celebrations this Christmas. There’ll be sparkling decorations and our exclusive Percy the Park Keeper winter wander trail. You’ll find café treats too, and beautiful winter walks to explore. So do drop by – we’d love to see you.
We all need a break from the box sets, so why not blow away the cobwebs and get out into the countryside on a winter walk. Pull on a warm jacket and wellies and bribe, blackmail or berate your household as necessary. Alternatively, a solitary walk can be a peaceful balm at a busy time. However you get there, enjoy the outdoors at our places in the South East this holiday season.
You'll find a huge variety of gardens and parks across the South East. From rose gardens and walled gardens to sweeping lawns and historic parkland, our gardens and parks have stories to tell and views to enjoy.
