Summer school holiday trail

Our fun family summer trail can only be solved by animal experts; do you have what it takes? With lots of animals running wild, see if you can identify those who have left their marks behind. With activities to complete along the way, bring all the family along to take part in our trail which runs throughout the summer school holidays.

50 things to do before you're 11 ¾

Have you completed all of your 50 Things this summer? If not, Hinton Ampner is the perfect place to run free and tick some activites off your list. 

With lots of trees in the park you’ll be able to hunt for bugs, catch a falling leaf, make a daisy chain, as well as look inside a tree. After a rainy day you might even be able to track wild animals.

Pick up a booklet at visitor reception and explore the parkland and gardens to see how many you can complete.

Walking trails

For those more adventurous, head out into the estate and find our den building area in the woods. With lots of woodland to explore, see what wildlife you can spot and stop off for a picnic along the way.  Try out making your own wild art with sticks and leaves you find on the forest floor.
