Visiting with Children

Play Activities for Children

We love to see children enjoying themselves at Lowther Castle & Gardens. We want kids to be kids. Not only do we have 130 acres to run wild in, woods to explore, summerhouses to spy, tree swings to take off on and not to mention all the hidden wildlife and secret paths to follow.  

New for 2016 we now have our amazing Lost Castle adventure play area to discover, come and fly on the zip wires, swoosh down the fireman's pole and hang around on the monkey bars. Imaginations and children really can run wild!

Discover the Castle & Gardens with one our specially designed Tale Trails - an interactive map designed for little explorers. 

Regretfully, due to the historic nature of the garden, and for the safety of other visitors, we do not allow bikes or scooters to be used in the gardens.
