Summer Holidays at Tredegar House

Tredegar House bursts into life over the summer months and this year we’ve pulled together a programme of wild adventures to nurture your love for nature.

Go on a scavenger hunt

Perfect for solo adventurers, or groups big and small, this summer’s scavenger hunt will test your seeking skills in the gardens at Tredegar House.

Pick up a clue sheet from the visitor reception team and head out into the Orchard Garden to start your hunt.

Enlist all your senses as you figure out the clues and discover the password to claim your sticker and gain entry into the house where the adventure continues.

Put your outdoor skills to the test and see how many of the 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ you can tick off along the way.

Tick off some '50 things' with our team

We’ll also be on hand throughout the summer to help you tick off some of the 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ over the holidays.

Get creative with the flora throughout the gardens, learn some essential bushcraft skills or simply have some fun with nature.
