Have an adventure at Osterley over the Summer holidays. With plenty of ways to get active and play the whole family can get involved and go home happy and tired.

Get set, go!

Get the whole family active at Osterley this summer. Collect a Get set, Go! card from the Kiosk and see what adventures you can have. We have activites set up in the Gardens to get you started and they'll change every two weeks so make sure you come back to see what's new.

The Gardens are open every day from 10am-5pm, and you're welcome to bring a picnic, or pop out to the cafe for something to keep your energy up. You don't need to book to visit the Gardens, so visit as many times as you like.
