Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Considering it used to be an ironstone quarry, Irchester Country Park is very easy on the eye! It features a great children's play and activity area that includes varying climbing frames, slides, swings and loads of other popular bits of kit suitable for keeping kids under 10 years happy. There are circular, way marked and hard surfaced trails throughout the woodlands that are ideal for push and wheel chairs. There are several designated picnic areas along the routes but if you need a coffee to keep you going the Quarryman's Rest cafe is apparently open daily.

Natural residents of the woodlands here include Muntjac Deer, hedgehogs, stoats and squirrels, so it's worth keeping your eyes peeled and maybe even taking binoculars! Kids' Orienteering Packs are available which offer differing trails to follow.

Though they are managed individually you can also find the Jungle Parc High Ropes Adventure Course and the Irchester Narrow Gauge Railway museum on this site, so it's really easy to extend your day out without even having to get back in the car! That said bear in mind that the museum is only open on Sundays, but it is free!
