See spring from a new perspective

Ranger giving a talk to visitors outside

Throughout April and May, we will be hosting a series of walks that will allow you to immerse yourself into spring.

On the 21st and 22nd April, you can join one of our ranger team and explore the Parkland in all of its glory on our spring woodland walks. This walk will be 2 miles long, and will take you to places you may have never seen before. Booking online for this event is essential. The walk costs £2 and normal admissions apply.

Our dawn chorus walk is a unique opportunity to wake up with the feathered friends of Shugborough, and welcome to dawn chorus in all of its glory. Join us at 4:45am and listen to the melody of birds welcoming in spring. Don't worry, you will be able to enjoy a bacon butty and a warm cup of tea from our Tea-Room once you have finished. Booking is essential, and the walk costs £8.40. Normal admission applies.
