Clumber Park provides the perfect backdrop for exploring, relaxing and spending time together in winter.

Home to 3,800 acres of natural woodland and heathland, Clumber Park is the perfect place to get out and get active.

Whether you're exploring new routes or wandering familiar paths, we have something for everyone. Find a walking route for you.

How long have you got?

An hour

Explore our Pleasure Grounds, enjoy the fresh air and stunning lakeside views, trace the lines of the mansion site, step inside the chapel and browse our Laundry Yard shop.

A few hours

Take off on two wheels around the quieter parts of Clumber Park. Visit our Cycle Hub to hire bikes for all ages, mobility scooters and accessible bikes.

Stop by one of our food and beverage outlets to refuel. Bringing your dog? Pay a visit to our dog-friendly cafe, Central Bark.

All day

A seasoned rambler, or a steady stroller? Our lakeside walk is the perfect way to relax, regardless of pace.

Spot wildlife on your journey round the 4-mile route, stop by our Ornamental Bridge and learn about the restoration project and call in at our Main Cafe for refreshments in the grand Duke's Study on your return.

Visiting with little ones

There's something for every age at Clumber Park. Become one with nature in Leaping Bar; our natural play area, situated next to the main visitor car park.

Visit our Discovery Centre, enjoy crafts and colouring, complete the sensory trail, take a look at our wildlife exploration tank and learn about the variety of animals found here in Clumber Park.

Take a short walk along Cedar Avenue into our Walled Kitchen Garden and see where more than 50% of the produce used in our cafes comes from.

Spot swans, geese, rabbits and squirrels in the Pleasure Grounds, before enjoying warm mince pies and ice cream in the Parsonage.
