Who will take the pumpkin crown at Easton Walled Gardens?

Have your say

Easton Walled Gardens has a strict ‘Keep ON the grass’ policy, welcoming children for a half-term of exploring, making and creating.

Activities will include the ancient game of pumpkin rolling, which challenges players to roll a pumpkin down the beautiful grass terraces without breaking your pumpkin...and the furthest roller wins.

The team at the gardens have come up with lots of great activities to make the most of your autumn half-term.

After you’ve rolled your pumpkin, you can plant your own conker or Hyacinth in a pot to take home and watch it grow, or explore the gardens on a nature scavenger hunt.

There’s also leaf piles for jumping in, conkers to find, follow the Wren Trail around the 12 acres of gardens, or simply kick a ball and play with hoops on the vast lawns.

The tearoom is open every day serving warming homemade soups and light lunches. If the sun is shining then families are welcome to bring a picnic.

Adults can walk in 12 acres of grounds, find out the fascinating history behind these 400 year old gardens and enjoy some relaxed Christmas shopping in the well stocked shop which is full of unusual quality gifts.

The gardens are open and activities available on the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, 11am-4pm during half-term week (October 21-30), £6.95 for adults and £2.95 for children.
