Picnic and play

The gardens and parkland are perfect for a picnic whatever the weather. Spread out the blankets and settle down for the day. We've got great picnic options for kids in the café so why not stockup before you set off to find your perfect picnic spots. You can pitch up in the formal gardens and enjoy the views or set off into the parkland and explore.
