There's picnics, play and periscopes on offer this summer at Sheffield Park. Children of all ages will love following our interactive trail in the garden and discover what it was like to be invited to one of the Earl's grand summer parties.

Pick up a free trail map when you arrive and use it to discover some unusual surprises hidden around the garden.  

Once you've completed the trail, venture out to our parkland and discover the natural play area at Ringwood Toll and Skyglade, or pick up a 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾ booklet from reception, and start ticking off your list today. Every Wednesday in August, we are putting on our most popular 50 things workshops.  Led by our Sheffield Park team, they are always in demand so book in advance to secure a place.
