Summer of Play at Hidcote

There’s lots of fun to be had this summer at Hidcote from the 3rd August to the 1st September.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Come and take part in the Summer of Play at Hidcote, every day from 3 August - 1 September.

Pick up a map from Visitor Reception and follow the dotted line to find the different activities. What will you do first? Maybe you’ll have a game of tennis with your family? Or perhaps you’ll pick up a mallet to try your skills with croquet? How about seeing how good your aim is with a game of ring toss. With so much to do for all the family, make sure to visit Hidcote this summer.

While you're here why not treat yourself to an ice cream or relax at a shady picnic spot in the dedicated picnic area by the car park. Put your sun hat on and come and make the most of being outdoors this summer. 

Summer of Play activities are free (normal admission applies) so you can try them all and come back again and again.

Summer of Play is sponsored by Starling Bank.
