An established Royal country retreat,Polesden Lacy offers an insight into the opulence of a classic Edwardian manor, from the solid gold room to the Faberge trappings, plus extensive art works from oils to ceramics displayed. To help keep young kids interested in the house there is also a vintage dress up chest provided.

Outside in the 1400 acres of grounds you can roam formal floral gardens and herbaceous bordered strolls, or head further afield and explore woodland, meadow and wide open spaces great for traditional play (areas where ball games are permitted are marked) and picnicking. There is a proper play area too, The Squirrel's Corner Adventure Playground has simple, natural style equipment suitable for most ages and abilities.

There are also 4 way marked nature trails of varying length, you can pick up trail maps and other information at the big white tent in the Dairy Courtyard plus they offer binoculars on loan to use from the many bird hides and resting areas.

Between May and September kids can try their hand at croquet for a small extra charge, plus other activities from kite making to snail racing are hosted for families during most school holidays, so it's well worth planning ahead!
