Killerton is ideal for a family day out, with an elegant 18th century house with a renowned historical fashion collection, glorious landscaped garden, surrounded by parkland, and plenty to see and do.
There really is something for everyone here!
A historical home with lots to see and replica costumes to try on, plus a Discovery Centre that is open for families during school holidays, mean that there is always something to see and do here. Learn about Killerton during the war, play the organ or piano in the Music Room, enjoy some arts and crafts, and pick up a walking trail (these are also available online to download for free).
There are a number of trails to follow in the grounds, and you can you bring the family pooch (on a lead) to join you in park and estate walks, as there are dog bowls and posts available. There is even a buggy and toddler friendly walk for the little ones to enjoy. See if you can spot the Bear Hut! There is also a Dragon Play Trail, which takes you on a quest through the woods with 9 challenges to complete, a Scavenger Hunt, a Mystical Tree Trail, a map reading challenge and more! Play on slack lines and giant swings, build dens, catch a falling leaf, find giant redwood trees, and explore ancient orchards.
If you've had fun on your family day out to Killerton, tell us about it your visit, so other people will know it's a great place to go as well.
