Climbing and racing
Climb the steps in the giant rockery for an amazing view, before heading towards the maze.
Who will get to the centre first?
Next, decide if anyone is brave enough to walk the length of the Coal tunnel in the dark?
You can also use the children’s trail to find the human sundial, the balancing rock and the Emperor fountain. How high do you think it is?
Water, water everywhere
From the winding Trout stream to the Emperor fountain which can shoot water over 250 feet in the air, there's water everywhere. Keep an eye out for the willow tree fountain, but watch out, you may get wet!
Did you know all the water in the garden comes from the lakes above and feeds the water in our toilets?
Take a break
Find a picnic spot that will be perfect to relax and reload. You can bring your own food and drink or pick something up in one of our eateries.
