Belvoir Castle Adventure Playground
Open daily 10:30am – 5pm
A family day out to remember
Welcome to the Belvoir Castle Adventure Playground!
Our brand new Adventure Playground is inspired by the iconic architecture of Belvoir Estate and its past and present explorers. Altogether the playground covers four acres and is a safe space for imaginations to run free! Featuring a giant timber castle, along with a ship and towers, it is perfect for children and teenagers of all ages to explore!
“The whole ethos of this playground is inclusivity! Everything is built so that parents and grandparents can join their children in play. We have worked around the natural topography of the woodland to create a non-invasive structure which we hope will feed everyone’s imaginations and I hope that many happy memories are made for families on this wonderful adventure playground.”

Suitable for all ages and abilities
Whether they’re crawling, climbing or jumping for joy.
There also will be plenty for our smaller adventurers to explore! We are planning too add a mini bridge, a slide and crawl tunnel specifically for smaller children. We will also be adding a wooden car structure which is inspired by the present Duke’s 100-year-old Renault!
Discover magical new worlds
Calling all pirates, knights and explorers.
The castle structure has multiple levels to explore. Discover hidden tunnels, a giant tube slide and even a secret climbing wall! The ship, also accessible via a ramp, features porthole windows for spotting other pirates, a climbing net to scramble away from danger and even a zip wire for daring sailors to exit the deck and go flying through the trees.
Refuel as you play
Discovering new realms and expanding your imagination is hungry work! Give those little hands and feet a much-deserved rest during your visit and fill their tummies at any of our cafés and restaurants at Belvoir Castle and the Engine Yard.
Enjoy a light bite and a hot drink at the Vale View Café which is just a stone’s throw from the Adventure Playground! Need something more substantial? Then head over to the Engine Yard for a tasty, nutritious meal at the Fuel Tank Kitchen – there are even wood-fired pizzas to tuck in to!
