Families can have a great day at 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. The Playzone is suitable for children up to the age of 10.

Children will enjoy zooming along the zip wire and building castles in the sandpit. They can also enjoy flying on the swings and down the slides!

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

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

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

The Gardens Are Just Magical

The gardens themselves are full of twists and turns and no doubt our tea cottage will look more like something out of a fairy tale to the children.

Disney and CBeebies Have Filmed at Arley

Disney filmed Evermoor which is about the adventures of an American girl who comes to live in England. Arley provided 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  as soon as the hall re-opens.

Mr Tumble has also visited and filmed in the gardens and the woods several times!

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, such as Fairy Tales & Trails Day and Geronimo.

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.
