Wrap up warm and go for a family walk on the wider estate; take in the views, countryside and wildlife that make the outdoors at Godolphin so special. There’s always time for tea and cake, and we’ve got a selection in our Piggery tearoom – the perfect place to warm up.

Godolphin is only closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas day so there's plenty of time to visit. Bring your dog too, dogs on short leads welcome throughout the gardens, and can run freely on the wider estate.
