Explore the garden and grounds
When Lord and Lady Bearsted bought Upton House in 1927 their three sons enjoyed having adventures across the estate. The youngest son Tony, who was still at school when Upton became the family's weekend retreat, would have loved our '50 things to do before you're 11¾' activity sheet. Pick yours up from reception before exploring the grounds.
