Kite flying and other 50 things

If you're not yet 11 ¾  then you're at a very special age and there are lots of things we think you should try before you grow up. You can find the list of 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾ here, but of all of them we think you should try these at Polesden:

  • Fly a kite - we've got loads of open sky at Polesden
  • Roll down a really big hill - we've got one of them too
  • Make a daisy chain - the daisies are out in force at the moment
  • Build a den - we've got lots of sticks and stuff

You can do lots more of the 50 things at Polesden Lacey.
