Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trail

This winter, treat your little ones to a world of adventures at Polesden Lacey, Claremont Landscape Garden, Hatchlands Park and Winkworth Arboretum on Percy the Park Keeper's winter wander trail. Join in the fun with Percy and his animal friends and give nature a helping hand.

See the house at Polesden Lacey dressed for Christmas with each room transformed by the evergreen beauty of the festive season. Look out for woodland creatures having their own Christmas fun and games whilst no one is looking. Join the trail around the house and see what animals you can spot along the way.

The magic continues outdoors where an enchanted wood is waiting to be discovered. Two elves need help to find Father Christmas and the lost presents. Can you help? Perhaps you will be lucky enough to meet the great man himself. Christmas at Polesden Lacey runs from 27 November to 26 December.
