visit Groombridge Place over Easter to enjoy a spectacular full stage musical production of Alice in Wonderland in the New Outdoor Forest Theatre.
With a west end cast and specially created costumes, each 40-minute performance will captivate audiences as they watch the famous tale unfold in the natural surroundings of the Enchanted Forest.
Twice daily performances.
The new arts and crafts area is where children get creative and face painting and canal boat rides are available at a small charge. Boat rides ferry visitors from the gardens to Crusoe’s World in the Enchanted Forest.
Explore the walled gardens surrounding the moated manor house (house not open to the public) and enjoy a game of chess on the giant outdoor chess set. Birds of prey displays take place twice daily.
Other family favourites included with admission are the Giant Tree Swings and Family Nest Swings.
Recently expanded Crusoe’s World offers lots of fun and adventures with new rope bridges, walkways and a fabulous new wooden ship for little pirates. There is also a refreshment area.
