Fenton House has put together a program of activities for families to enjoy right through August. We're hoping we can provide a beautiful space for you to spend the day with your family and most importantly have a little fun! Activities will include art and ceramics trails in the house, lawn games in the garden and an art studio for your little artists to create their own masterpieces to take home.

Fenton House and Garden Summer Holiday Activities

Fenton House Opening times: Wednesday – Sunday, 11am – 5pm
Activities running daily from 11am – 5pm throughout August. Last entry time: 4.30pm.

Art Trail and Studio

Fenton House is lucky to have artworks by some very talented and famous artists and we’d love for you and your family to visit and learn more about them in a fun and informal way. The team at Fenton House has put together an art trail to encourage children to get a closer look at our paintings. They’ll discover works by the very popular Camden Town Group artists like Duncan Grant, Charles Ginner, Robert Bevan and Walter Sickert. As well as some stunning landscapes by John Constable and some beautiful still‑life paintings by William Nicholson.

We’ll then be offering your little artists the chance to create their own masterpiece in our art studio, which will be set up in our peaceful walled garden. Art supplies will be provided so all you have to bring with you is your creativity.

Don’t let rain put you off! If the weather decides to work against us, don’t worry – we’ll move the art studio into one of our basement rooms.

Ceramics Trail

Something strange is happening with our ceramic collection! We seem to have acquired some additional pieces recently and we need some help from your little porcelain experts to find the pieces that don’t belong. We’ve set up a trail to see if you can find all the out‑of‑place items.

Fun and Games

We will be using our amazing lawn to set up a fun‑and‑games area where you and your family can come and enjoy a number of lawn games.  Games will include huge Snakes and Ladders, Croquet, Connect Four and many more. We hope we can provide a beautiful space for you to spend the day with your family and most importantly have a little fun!

All our Summer Holiday activities are free of charge. Admission for non-members still applies.
Admission – Adult: £8.50, Child: £4.20
