Explore nature this February Half Term at Shugborough Estate

Bring the family and join us at Shugborough for a week of outdoors adventures.

Building Bugborough

This spring we need your help restoring and rejuvenating Shubgorough’s bug 'borough' for creatures of all shapes and sizes. Join us on the 19th and 22nd February, between 10am and 2pm. The day includes a session led by our rangers, who'll share their knowledge on the estate's wildlife and their habitats, as well as a prepared packed lunch for little ones. Minimum age 7yrs (adult supervision required), assistance dogs only. Book your space for only £5, normal site admissions apply.

Get to know a tree trail

Throughout February budding Rangers can meet the different types of trees that live at Shugborough on our woodland trail. Pick up your trail from visitor reception for £1. Normal admissions to the site apply.

Don't forget about all the 50 things to do before you're 11¾ that you can do while you're here, such as kite flying, jumping in muddy puddles and playing pooh sticks at Essex Bridge.

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.

While you're here, make sure that you visit our Explorer's Wood and see what adventures you can imagine in our sea themed play area
