Have fun this February Half Term

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

This February half term, we have lots for you to be doing to enjoy the nature of the outdoors. Lose yourself in our estate on our textured tree trail, as you discover the hidden secrets of the Parkland and see what hidden colours you can find as you learn about the trees around you.

Have your little ones lend a helping hand to build a giant bird's nest in the woods with Shugborough's Ranger team. Shugborough was once a proud habitat for nesting Lapwings, but in recent years their numbers on the estate have declined. By helping us to build a sculpture of this wild animal's home, you will help raise awareness and protect them. Booking for this is essential.

Don't forget about all the 50 things to do before you're 113/4 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
