Attraction Information

Discover Valentines Mansion and Gardens: a beautiful 300 year old country house and gardens in the heart of Ilford. Set within the historic Valentines Park, families can enjoy heaps of hands-on fun.

Step back in time and visit the recreated period rooms, including the Victorian Kitchen and Georgian bedchamber. Enjoy the dedicated Family Room and get all dressed up in Victorian costume and pose for a picture portrait, play cook at the mini kitchen range, get busy with the mini mansion dolls house, delve in to the history of Valentines on the touch screen computer, or relax with a book or some jigsaws.

Borrow a games bag for traditional family fun or become a House Detective and explore the mansion. Explore the outdoors with a Nature Backpack: packed with fun activities including bird watching, a bat quiz, a plant and bug hunt. The back pack includes interesting facts and some fun questions.

A special events calendar runs throughout the year including school holiday activities.

Continue your day with a walk around Valentines Park. This lush green space offers a ‘natural' play area, boats on the lake (during summer), and lots of space for a family picnic: you'll have hours of fun at Valentines.
