Family fun at Rococo Garden Painswick this summer



Painswick's Rococo Garden is a fantastic place for families to explore together. Children (and grownups!) are encouraged to let their imaginations and feet run wild.

Whether navigating the maze, having a pretend tea party in the Hermitage, playing hide and seek in the nooks and crannies, racing up hills and rolling down embankments or simply playing in the rustic woodland playground, the Garden's friendly team love to see people enjoying this gorgeous place.

Your furry family members needn’t miss out on all the fun either, as the Rococo Garden welcomes well-behaved dogs.

Holiday highlights are:

Minibeast Trail – Throughout school holidays

Families are invited to discover some of the amazing little creatures that call this Garden home. The trail is a mini-adventure around the Garden, with stamps hidden along the way for children to collect. There are interesting facts to find out about our Garden critters - many of which you might pass by without even noticing! And Hannah Shaw, children’s illustrator and author, has provided some fabulous illustrations to accompany the trail. At the end of all their detective work, participants decipher a mystery phrase and win a prize. And best of all, there is no extra charge to take part.

Alice in Wonderland - 2.30pm on 27 & 28 August

Follow IK Productions down the rabbit-hole this summer and join Alice as she meets the weird and wacky residents of Wonderland. Based on the novel by Lewis Carroll, this new adaptation for all the family promises to be entertaining, energetic and lots of fun. So bring along a picnic and join the Mad Hatter's tea party, and experience Alice’s world as it becomes curiouser and curiouser. Tickets are available from 01242 572573.

Stonebalancing – Throughout July and August

Young and old alike will marvel at these gravity-defying sculptures. Adrian Gray creates balancing sculptures using weathered stone in natural locations, with the predominant feature being the beauty and seemingly impossible and puzzling nature of balance. Adrian’s captivating sculptures are in place in the Garden throughout the summer until the end of August.

With easy, free parking and delicious homemade cakes and freshly-ground coffee, a visit to the Garden will be a stress-free day out.
