Big Camp at Runnymede

Summer is on its way, bringing with it long light evenings and plenty of opportunity for adventures. Come to Runnymede for Big Camp 2020, a unique chance to camp within this truly historic setting.

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 8 and Sunday 9 August 2020, you can join us from 4pm 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. Get involved with an evening of special activities run by our wildlife expert Jonnie, exploring the great outdoors. And what camping trip would be complete without roasting marshmallows around the camp fire. Tickets are £30 for adults and £15 for children.
