Attraction Information

RHS Garden Hyde Hall in rural Essex is a place where you can unwind in stunning natural surroundings while your kids run around, play and explore. To start with, there’s a giant 7-metre Higgledy Hyde woodland tower to keep your cheeky monkeys entertained with slides, swings on ropes, wobble boards and much more. And this is just the beginning...

Follow a garden trail to discover many bizarre plants - from one which smells like peanut butter, to one which has leaves as big as a brolly! The tiny explorers are also welcome to go on a bug hunt, or see how many different types of fish they can spot in the pond. Don’t forget to stop by the bird hide to make some new feathery friends!  

Make the most of being outdoors - find a quiet spot in the shade to have a family picnic and let the little ones enjoy the fresh air. Running barefoot in the grass, rolling down green hills, or flying a kite are all things your tots will enjoy. RHS Garden Hyde Hall also regularly organises family-friendly activities and events, so be sure to check what’s on before you go.
