Winter Weekends Go to... Reconnect with nature Explore Eat, shop & stay Top

Forget the winter blues by getting out and enjoying the great outdoors.

This January to March explore the gardens that are wonderful at this time of year, with early spring-flowering snowdrops and winter aconities, winter shrubs and unusual views before the trees come into leaf. It’s a perfect time to be inspired and reconnect with nature, spend time with friends and family or cosy up with a delicious hot chocolate.


£10 adult, £5 child, £25 family
National Trust, Art Fund and RHS members free

Reconnect with nature



There’s never been a better time to explore the grounds and get healthy. Walk one of the five mapped routes to discover highlights of the season in the gardens and lesser known areas in the wider estate. You can bring your dog along for all five walks. It’s time to get out and soak up views of Aylesbury Vale, contemporary architecture and winter plants.

Learn a new skill this winter with our orienteering activities around the grounds. Pick up a £1 map on arrival at the Welcome Pavilion and try one of five courses in the grounds. Complete them and you’ll receive a certificate.
