Summer at Standen House and Garden
Summer is the best time to explore the garden and estate at Standen and there is plenty to see and do with garden trails, woodland walks, exhibitions in the House and activities throughout the school holidays all inspired by the Morris & Co. designs you can see at Standen.
In the house
Delve into the world of Morris & Co. at Standen in this new exhibition throughout the house, garden and estate. Discover the inspiration behind the popular patterns of flowers and birds in designs, learn a new skill in a craft workshop and bring the whole family for fun events. Saturday 1 June - Sunday 10 November 2019.
In the garden
The garden blooms in summer with summer flowering trees & shrubs, nectar rich plants and shades of red in the borders. Discover the quarry garden, smell the roses and taste fresh produce from the kitchen garden in Barn Café.
Explore the woodland
Download a woodland walk before your visit or pick up a Tree Trail when you arrive and explore the woodland and wider estate. For those more experienced walkers, we have plenty of longer walks available from Visitor Reception. If the sun is shining, why not pack a picnic to enjoy in our picnic area or pick up an ice-cream from the café to enjoy in the garden.
Summer holiday family fun
Throughout the school summer holidays the whole family can join in activities inspired by nature. Get creative with a hands-on craft activity; play with our outdoor toys or have a game of croquet; win a prize with a themed trail around the garden; build a den; explore the garden or try our indoor spotting trail.
