Get in on the action at Blenheim Palace's exciting Adventure Play area.

Blenheim Palace is set for an action-packed February half term, with extended opening times and special events for families in 2024.

Kids can journey through a secret door in the Walled Garden to find the Adventure Play area — with zip-lines, slides and a series of tunnels to crawl through.

Complimentary dance sessions, pebble painting workshops and animal-themed storytelling sessions are also on offer throughout half term.

Once little ones are worn out, they can refuel at the Walled Garden Pizzeria — kids get a free margarita, freshly made on-site in its wood-fired pizza oven, with the purchase of an adult's main course.

After exploring the Walled Garden, the miniature train is available for a fun-filled ride back to the palace.

Little artists who want a challenge can enter the woodland animal themed colouring competition — the winner will get a family pass for the Adventure Play area, as well as a hamper from the Blenheim Palace shop.

Adventure-lovers can stomp through the woodland trail to help Delilah the cow find her animal buddies; navigate the Marlborough Maze; and meet the flock of Blenheim sheep in the pop-up petting pen.

Blenheim Palace is open every day of February half term 2024, from 10am to 5pm. The Walled Garden opens at 10am and closes at 3.30pm, while the Adventure Play is open from 10.15am to 3.15pm.

Tickets start at £13.50 for a child; £28 for an adult; with under threes going free. Access to the Adventure Play area costs £7.
