May half term adventures

Two children run across the green lawn

This half term we're having a go at our 50 Things to do before we're 11 and 3/4. From den building to barefoot walking, planting seeds to getting to know a tree, there's plenty to do every day. We'll also be looking for all the colours of the summer garden in our colour hunt trail.

50 things, bug hunts, den designs and more

There’s nothing better than getting out with the kids, packing a picnic and ticking off some 50 things.

Get your free ‘50 things to do before you are 11 ¾’ scrapbook at the Welcome Centre. On days where we haven’t got an event, why not create your own self-led adventure and see if you can tick off any of your ‘50 Things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ activities?

Colour Hunt trail

Pick up the Colour Hunt trail at the Welcome Centre and discover everything the garden has to offer. Find out what colour your personality is in our colouring station on the Serpentine Lawn.

Fuelling the adventure

The Park Café sells snacks and family friendly lunches, or teach your children proper tea is taken the old fashioned way in the Chapel Tea-room. Or bring a picnic and dine out on the lawn and if the weather takes a turn for the worse set up camp in the Orangery. Let’s not forget the ice cream come rain or shine in the Park Café.
