Went for first time today, April 13th. On arrival, staff were really friendly; they offered kids a chance to do an Easter egg hunt for £2. The choice of quality eggs made this worth it. We followed the walk to the White Tower, past the...More

We had such a great afternoon in Hawkstone Park Follies. We went with our children aged 4, 6 and 8 . The "long" way round took us just under 3 hours, but it was amazing for them, they loved it all, never got tired or...More
