Trentham Gardens details...

Add Trentham Gardens to your list if you are planning family days out in Staffordshire. Located just south of Stoke-on-Trent and part of the Trentham Estate, it is a hugely popular attraction for visitors of all ages. Whether it is family action and fun or peace and tranquillity you are seeking, these fabulous award-winning gardens are ideal.

Stroll through the famous Italian Gardens, find the Rivers of Grass and the Floral Labyrinth alongside. Gaze over Trentham Lake lying at the centre of the gardens. Explore the Show Gardens such as the therapeutic Sound Garden, intriguing Jurassic Garden or the Winter Wildlife Garden with plants selected both for the benefit of nature and seasonal interest.

Younger visitors will be delighted by the fantastic woodland adventure playground with zip wire, sandpits, Young Drivers Zone and assault course. In the warmer months, kids can try the barefoot walk, tickling their toes as they walk over mud, grass, pebbles and more. Special foot showers and driers are provided.

Check out the special talking pipes in the ’hide and speak’ maze and see if they help you find your way to the top of the grass mound in the centre, or follow the fairy trail around the mile-long lake and on through the gardens and woodland.

From spring to autumn there are rides on the miniature train or trips on the Miss Elizabeth on the lake.

Make time to stroll through acres of ’Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland before you leave – plenty of room to kick a ball about and play games. There are special family-friendly activities and children’s events throughout the year.

Trentham Estate also includes Trentham Monkey Forest, high ropes adventure Aerial Extreme, Trentham Garden Centre and Trentham Shopping Village. Combined tickets to include Trentham Monkey Forest are available.

Please see Trentham’s website to find out more.
