Attraction Information

Enjoy a wonderful day out at Polesden Lacey - the stunning Edwardian manor where Dame Margaret Greville entertained her royal guests over 100 years ago. Inside the house you’ll discover exquisite artworks, faberge and even a gold room. Your little lords and ladies will have the chance to slip into period costume and unleash their imagination.

Outside you’ll find 1400 acres of woodlands to explore, formal gardens and huge grounds offering plenty of space to run, build dens and fly a kite. Your little adventurers will love rolling down the sloping lawn and having fun at the Squirrel's Corner natural play area. For the animal lovers, there’s also a bird hide, a chicken coop and beehives to discover.

Love walking? Follow the marked nature trails through the Polesden Lacey estate for families all year round and explore additional kid-friendly trails during school holidays. Don’t forget to check out their events programme before you go for more exciting family entertainment!
