SOLD OUT: Big Camp at Runnymede

Pitch your tent in the birthplace of modern English democracy. This summer you can join us for an evening of family fun, camping in the same rolling landscape that saw King John seal the Magna Carta 800 years ago. Join us to watch the sun set over the Thames in picturesque Old Windsor for an experience your family will never forget.

Two children camping at night

Enjoy this historic landscape in a new light as darkness falls and the sun rises in the morning. Taking place on the weekend of Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 July 2016, you can join us from 3.30pm on Saturday and stay with us overnight until 10am on Sunday morning. 

You'll get outside and closer to nature with this exciting traditional camping experience. Our Ranger Team have put together a whole programme of fun activities to keep the family entertained, and what camping trip would be complete without roasting marshmallows around the camp fire. We’ll also supply an evening meal as well as breakfast in the morning. Tickets are £30 for adults and £15 for children.
