Do you remember when you played with a bucket and spade at the seaside? Well it’s the same but… with fresh snow! The Winter Playground is covered with fresh snow and children can play, build snowmen, make snowballs and have lots of fun together.

Dress for the weather. Winter Playground will go ahead in all types of weather.

Winter Playground takes place in The Alnwick Garden so you will need an admission ticket for entry.
