Outdoor adventures at May half term

Don't forget to collect your arrow

As the weather gets warmer, take your family to enjoy some exciting explorations at Shugborough this May half term

Throughout the week, we will be hosting trails that will take you out into the new summer blooms of spring and allow you to spend some quality family time together on your adventures.

May time adventures

Book your space onto our events and try your hand at archery to compete to see who can hit the highest score. Do you have a head for heights? Join The Great Tree Climbing Company and, with the assistance of a harness, climb to the tree tops to enjoy the beautiful views of Shugborough in the height of spring.

Why don’t you try and complete all the things on your 50 things before you turn 11¾ list? Fly your kite, hunt for bugs or play pooh sticks on Essex Bridge. There is plenty to see and do at Shugborough with your friends and family.

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.

 

Take nothing but photographs

Budding photographers can book onto a beginner's photography walk. Spend the morning of the 7th June familiarising yourself with the basics of photography, and be inspired by the late Lord Lichfield's favourite spots.
