There are lots of places to play at Polesden. Climb on the natural climbing frames by Admirals Walk, play hide and seek in the woodland or build a den in the woods. Our natural play area, Squirrels Corner, is closed at the moment.

Mrs Greville hung swings in the trees when she invited local schoolchildren to Polesden Lacey for their summer party. We're continuing that legacy today. Why not try out our fun giant swings, which hang beautifully from the strong boughs of our beech trees.
