Pick up an explorer backpack 

Get closer to nature with a handy one-stop shop for young explorers at Tredegar House. Learn how to use a compass, go pond dipping, scour the treetops for birds and identify the creepy crawlies in the undergrowth.

Enjoy the summer hues 

The summer bedding in the formal gardens has now blossomed into a wash of red, orange, pink and yellow. This is the best time of the year to explore our gardens, so make sure you catch the fiery blanket flower, mellow yellow begonias and dazzling foxgloves before they’re gone!
