Groombridge Place Gardens
Visitors can have fun in the maze and enjoy a walk round the pretty walled gardens where you can often see the Peacocks. Why not have a game of chess with family and friends on the giant chess set in the gardens which overlook the 17th century moated manor house.
Take the scenic walk along the canal path past ‘Bopatch’ the Shetland Pony and the famous Zeedonk ‘Harry’. Look out for the Kingfishers which can sometimes be seen along the canal walk.
At the end of the canal path is the popular children’s play area ‘Crusoe’s World which is named after the film ‘Crusoe’. Children can explore the large pirate ship, the fort and bridges or build a den in the den making area. Here you will also find the resident tattooist who will be offering temporary tattoos for a small fee.
Further into the Enchanted Forest visitors will find a new large wooden fort with a secret path which leads to an impressive wooden totem pole and two large tepees. The Forest has another surprise for young explorers with a raised board walk with obstacles, a rope swing and large swing. You can often see the wild Fallow Deer in this part of the Forest.
The café will be open with outdoor and covered seating and a choice of delicious cakes and coffees. Drinks, burgers and hot dogs are also available from Crusoe’s World.
Free parking close to the attraction.
You can also choose to take a Spa Valley steam train ride from Tunbridge Wells West or Eridge to Groombridge Station and take the 15 minute walk to Groombridge Place.
