Explorers' Games at Shugborough
Ready, Set Go! This summer, come along to Shugborough and get active outdoors by playing a variety of games across the estate. Purchase your Explorers' Map from reception, which will guide you to find games chests dotted around the estate, with lots of opportunities for exploration and things to spot on the way.
Take your pick of:
- Badminton and tennis on the old tennis courts
- Table Tennis in the Walled Gardens
- Relay Races at Park Farm
- Croquet in front of the Doric Temple
Keep track of your scores on your map and make sure to pick up a special Shugborough treasure coin when you've finished. Explorers' Games is happening from 22 July – 3 September, so you can keep coming back for more throughout the summer. You can play as little or as much as you like, but we recommend having water and sun-cream with you to be safe.
