Autumnal fun at Shugborough

Spider's web

From the end of September and through to October, Shugborough will be transformed by the harvest.

Shugborough will have a variety of things for you to bring your friends and family to do this autumn. Visit Park farm and see how life was on the farm at harvest time, then take a break and enjoy our seasonal recipes in the tea rooms. Or why not come and visit the Mansion house to see all the new work that we have done, and try to see how many bugs your little ones will spot.

50 Things
Don’t forget all of the things on your 50 things to do list that you can do during the autumn months. Be amongst the wildlife and hunt for bugs and watch for birds. Try and climb to the top of the hill, fly your kite and then roll back down. Or see who will be the champion of conkers?

Kite flying may have its ups and downs, but you’re sure to have a great day out if you bring your kite with you to Shugborough.

Become the greatest conkerer

Conker trees in Britain are facing many diseases. However, our outdoors team are keeping them at bay, meaning you can find your conkers to see if you can become the greatest conkerer!

Trails and Tales
During October half term, we will have a variety of trails for all ages that will take you all over the Parkland. On certain evenings, come to Explorer’s Wood and experience Explorer’s Tales. Join Captain Anson as he guides you through his journey around the world.
