Get out for an adventure in nature at Kingston Lacy

Find your adventure in nature this spring
We've got a special trail running through the woodland. Pick up a leaflet (for just £1) from reception and get ready to spot, find and build with all the activities on the Woodland Walk. Then use your leaflet to create a butterfly feeder when you get home, and send us your photos of the result.
The trail is accessible for wheelchairs and buggies. Please keep dogs on a lead. There is no need to pre-book for the trail, but be aware normal property admission applies. To guarantee entry to the property on busier days such as weekends and bank holidays, we recommend pre-booking your tickets.
'50 things' this summer
Kingston Lacy has acres of parkland to explore along our Woodland Trail – perfect for completing some of your '50 things to do before you're 11¾'.
Can you get to know a tree, go on a scavenger hunt or create a home for wildlife? (No.1, 30 and 36 on your '50 things' list).
The woods are home to all sorts of wildlife including squirrels, badgers, deer, and lots of birds and insects. If you see any see any furry or feathered friends, remember to stay quiet so you don’t scare them away.
The Woodland Walk is 1.5 miles (30 minutes-1 hour) but if you think your little adventurers might want to go further afield then you can explore the Woodland Trail which is 3 miles long (1.5-2 hours). The route is buggy, wheelchair and dog friendly but we do ask you to keep your four-legged friend on a short lead at all times.
