Family fun at Greenway
Spring is on the horizon and there are lots of things for families to enjoy at Greenway when it reopens. Agatha Christie and her family spent their holidays at Greenway, relaxing by the river and spending quality time together. Why not follow in their footsteps? Please remember to supervise your children at all times.
Please note Greenway will reopen the gardens for local visitors from Saturday 13 February 2021.
Inspired by Agatha Christie
As Greenway is the holiday home of Queen of Crime Agatha Christie, we like to celebrate this place's literary history. The Gazebo in the Walled Garden is a lovely place to read and relax, so why not bring along your favourite book and immerse yourself in this peaceful garden.
'50 things' fun
At Greenway there are lots of '50 things to do before you're 11¾' that you can tick off your list. It's is a good time to do these 50 things:
16. Wear a wild crown
The woodland garden is a great places to look for fallen leaves to fashion into a wild crown.
12. Have fun with sticks
You're sure to find a stick or two if you take a walk through the woodland garden. Why not lay a trail to help you find your way back?
2. Roll down a really big hill
If you head to the Top Garden you'll see a lovely grassy hill to roll down.
Adventures at the Boathouse and Battery
From the Boathouse quay you could count the boats on the river, which is always bustling with activity; trawlers, river cruises, a paddle steamer and kayakers can regularly be seen. At the Battery the cannon always captures little-one's imaginations - can you're kids defend Greenway from attack by river pirates?
