After checking out the breath-taking Great Hall, children can let off steam and run wild in the Magic Garden, besiege the towers and storm the battlements of the mystical playground.

End the day by enjoying the thrill of being lost in the Wilderness as you explore the UK’s oldest surviving hedge maze.
