Knights and Princesses go free to Hawkstone Park Follies

Hawkstone Park Follies is getting into the summer holiday spirit by offering all children who arrive dressed as knights or princesses free entry into the park on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th August.

The Grade I listed landscape, said to be the final resting place of King Arthur, is the original land of legend and fairytale. There’s family fun to be had as you guess the names of medieval knights and famous princesses popping up along a trail through fantastical follies and ancient woodlands.

Children can climb to the top of The Monument, see the rocky fortress of The Red Castle and discover a labyrinth of caves and passages known as The Grotto. Visitors to the park can also enjoy a picnic in the woods or lunch in Caspian’s Tearooms.

Hawkstone Park Follies is open from 10am to 5pm seven days a week throughout July and August (last admission 3pm on the gate). On Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July only, children (up to age 15) in costume can gain free entry with a full paying adult (entry £7.25).
