Get outdoors with the family at Upton this summer
Bring the family for a fun-filled day out at Upton House and Gardens.
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.
Become a junior garden designer
Come and earn your Junior Garden Designer badge at Upton House and Gardens this summer. Pick up an activity pack from reception for just £2. Follow the trail and discover Upton's famous Garden Designer Kitty Lloyd Jones's garden tools before designing your own outdoor space. This activity is perfect for children of all ages, including little ones.
