Half term fun at Greenway

A family playing croquet at Greenway

This May half term come and explore the fascinating outside world. There's a nature poem trail, things to spot indoors, traditional garden games to play and viewpoints to spot nature.




Great outdoors

When Agatha and her family spent their holidays here, they would play games and explore the gardens. Why not have a game of croquet or soft-ball tennis when you visit? Or take part in our code breakers trail around the woodland garden, which is free to pick up from Visitor Reception.

If you venture further down the paths towards the Boathouse, 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. It's also a great place to watch wildlife, such as the occasional seal in the river. The Battery is complete with cannon, which always captures little-one's imaginations. 


50 things fun 

At Greenway there are lots of 50 things to do before you're 11¾ that you can tick off your list. During half term you can:

16. Wear a wild crown

The lawns by the house and in the Walled Garden are great places to look for wild flowers.

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
