Exploring the Adventure Playground at Belvoir Castle


The Adventure Playground is inspired by the iconic Castle and was designed with its rich history, heritage and tales in mind. Lady Alice Manners oversaw the design and focused on creating a playground that brings families together.

When you arrive at the Adventure Playground, you’ll arrive at the remarkable wooden ship featuring an upper and lower deck, portholes and more. Watch your children as they crawl, climb, slide and even whizz through the woodland using the thrilling zip wire. The Adventure Playground boasts a majestic timber castle perfect for a forest fantasy.

Finish your day at the Engine Yard


Once you’ve experienced every part of the kids’ adventure park, you’ll be ready to rest, refuel and regroup. There will be no need to search “places to eat near me”, everything you need is within walking distance. Visit the Engine Yard Retail Village for a light bite, afternoon tea or hearty meal. Dine at the Fuel Tank Kitchen and enjoy tasty brunches, children’s picnic boards, traditional dishes or cheesy and delicious wood-fired pizzas. If you want to add some opulence to your day, why not savour afternoon tea at the Duchess Parlour?

Once you’re fed and watered, there is a fantastic range of independent stores for you to trawl. From chocolate to jewellery, there really is something for everyone. Take a look at the selection of Engine Yard shops here.
