In celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, families visiting Pensthorpe Natural Park between Saturday 28th May and Sunday 5th June can take little princes and princesses on a regal stroll round the 700-acre park to find nature’s royalty in a brand-new trail.

From kingfishers to a red crowned crane – which is the second rarest crane in the world – visitors will need to search high and low to locate guests for a tea party that’s fit for a king.

The trail, which weaves across Pensthorpe’s four stunning gardens, will feature captivating facts about these noble birds including which bird has the most unhygienic nest and which rare crane is a symbol of immortality.

Free arts and crafts for guests will be on offer so little ones can make their own nature crowns and flags and pretend to be royalty and there will also be a mini trail to explore at the park’s award-winning outdoor eco-playground, WildRootz, in the search for objects to make the perfect tea party.

The Courtyard Café will be serving themed tea party treats and there’s also the park’s indoor play area, Hootz House, to enjoy, as well as interactive trails, seven bird hides and several charming boardwalks that weave through the wilderness of the reserve.

Pensthorpe will be open every day between 10am and 5pm for the duration of the royal tea party trail.

Adult tickets are £13.95, senior (60+) tickets are £12.95 and child tickets (3-16) are £12.95. Under 3s are free. Alternatively, annual memberships are available for adults at £55, senior (60+) at £50 and children (3-16) at £50, which provide members with unlimited entry into the park and Hootz House for 12 months.
