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.
You might be surprised at how many birds you will be able to spot at Polesden Lacey. If you hunker down in our bird hide in Preserve Copse, you might spot a song thrush, a proud bullfinch and possibly even the elusive hawfinch. You may also spot our resident pea-hen.
A few birds who will always be happy to see you are our chickens. Why not stop by and say hello to them in their coop in the orchard.
