Family fun at Stourhead

Stourhead is the perfect place to run around and explore as a family. There’s something different to do every time you visit.

Being a landscape garden there are plenty of places to play games like hide and seek, but there is so much more that Stourhead has to offer whatever the weather.

Adventure lanyards

These are packed full of activities and things to spot and do all around the property so pick one up and start your adventure. Throughout the year you can use them to venture deeper into the history of Stourhead, how the family became wealthy and afforded to create Stourhead. 

There are new activities in the adventure lanyards, directing you to different activities around the property as well as a few activities to do on  your way. 

50 things

A range of the National Trust’s 50 things activities can be ticked off throughout the seaon, including run around in the rain, and catch a falling leaf. These scrapbooks can be picked up from visitor reception. Some of the activities that can be completed at Stourhead are explore inside a cave, build a den, roll down a really big hill, track wild animals and go bird watching so there's plenty or challenges and fun to be had.

Stamps for completing any of the 50 things can be collected at visitor reception.

There’s loads of fun to be had already, so leave the balls and bikes at home (these aren’t allowed in the garden as the paths and lake aren't suitable for them – sorry) and have fun exploring Stourhead as a family.
