A great day out for families. If you are looking for a great family day out look no further than Arley as there is plenty to keep the kids busy for hours.

If it is outdoor fun and games you are searching for then head for our PlayZone (suitable for children up to the age of 10).

Children will enjoy zooming along the zip wire, building castles in the sandpit or flying on the swings and down the slides.

For those who want to let their imaginations run wild there is a willow dome that in a child’s mind can become the perfect den in the woods.

For those wanting to build their own, there are enough branches to do just that.

After playtime there’s our picnic area that is perfect for lunch or simply a place for everyone to catch their breaths.

There’s also plenty of space for ball games so bring one along to extend the hours of fun.

Secret Garden Is Just Magic

The gardens themselves are full of twists and turns and no doubt our tea cottage will look more like something out of a fairytale to the children. Make sure you do the gardens trail.

There are lots of secrets to uncover, and hours of outdoor fun for everyone.

Evermoor And The Hall

Disney filmed its latest live action movie at Arley Hall.

Evermoor is about the adventures of an American girl who comes to live in England.

Arley provides the exterior facade for Evermoor Manor so any young fans of the series will enjoy a visit to the ‘set’ and also enjoy exploring inside the hall.

Don’t forget if you are visiting the hall there is also a quiz to guide the children around. Once again look for clues.

Food For Families

The Gardener’s Kitchen serves hot meals, snacks and drinks, but families are also welcome to enjoy their own picnic at the tables near the children’s playzone.

If you’re planning to visit during the summer holidays, don’t forget to check our website for special events and additional activities.

Enjoy the fun!


Arley Hall was a great day out with plenty to do but not enough time to do it all. My grandchildren were left happy, inspired and exhausted!” – Maureen Lynch, London.
