Belton House and Gardens

Relatively compact it may be, but the quality of its collection, its setting in 36 acres of formal gardens and 1300 acres of deer park mean that Belton House is a spectacular setting in which to spend your day out.

The work of leading designers, artists and craftsmen is evidenced in the house; from Grinling Gibbons carvings and Edward Goudge plasterwork to one of the most significant historic silver collections in the country and the second largest library held by the National Trust.

There's plenty to see and do for kids; why not go on an incredible adventure through the grounds of Belton House and parkland. With seasonal trails, activities and challenges, discover Belton's stories inside and out.

From exploring the Ride Play Café and creative crafts in the Discovery Centre to spotting wildlife in the Park and Gardens, there is something for all families to enjoy.
