Visiting with children

Our grounds are family friendly and there’s a lot for younger visitors to enjoy.

Our 150-acre site is home to an abundance of wildlife and children will enjoy exploring the many habitats and natural features of the site, including our maturing wildlife pond. 

Our NEW Children's Sensory Play Garden featuring tunnels, climbing globe, bannister slides and time circle is located close to the Remembrance Centre. A second children's play area is located in the Children's Wood onsite. 

Our NEW Landscapes of Life Exhibition includes interactive elements for younger visitors to enjoy including a 'magical' pathway of leaves which reveals poppies beneath as you walk though, and a hands-on exhibit for children to design their own memorial landscape with benches, trees, animals and symbols. Family tickets are available, please visit our daily activities page for further information. 

We run children's activities during Staffordshire school holidays. Visit our events pages for further information.

Children’s meal boxes are sold on site and picnic areas are also available.  We offer baby change facilities.

Top Tip... Pond dipping equipment is available for hire on selected days throughout the year but we welcome visitors with their own equipment daily. Children should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
