Family adventures at Upton in half-term

Children balancing on logs

Bring the family for a top notch day of adventures at Upton House and Gardens this half term.

Explore the garden and grounds

When Lord and Lady Bearsted bought Upton House in 1927 their three sons enjoyed exploring the new grounds at Upton. Inspired by Tony the youngest son, who was 9 years old, we are developing a range of fun activities and adventures to do at Upton.  

Try the explorer trail 

Try out our new orienteering trail over the holidays. Navigate your way to the special markers and follow the trail round the gardens, collecting letter clues as you go. Good for kids of all ages, including little ones.

Pick up an adventure pack to help you explore

Want to entertain the family whilst enjoying our outdoor spaces? Pick up an adventure pack from reception. There are spotting sheets, activities and tools to use to help you explore and play in our grounds. Have fun through learning, and please remember to return our equipment on your way out. Best for primary aged kids with a bit of guidance from the family.
