From 18th May to 30th June, the tranquil meandering path of the Mill Pond Walk will be transformed as woven willow sculptures line the walkway to delight visitors of all ages with its magical blend of fantasy and artistry.

Willow sculptures

There will be a selection of intricately woven willow sculptures along the trail of the Mill Pond walk, so make sure you keep a good look out for wonderful woodland foxes, owls, squirrels, and deer as well as magical unicorns, of course fairies and dragons, and even mischievous boggarts peeking out from behind the foliage.


Enchanted activity book

Younger visitors will be able to enjoy completing an ‘Enchanted Activity Book’ available to purchase upon arrival at Beaulieu. Inside are fun activities to complete from drawing to word searches and spot the difference, and at the end of the trail don’t forget to tie a ribbon to the magical wishing tree and make a special wish!


Grounds and gardens

Spring is the perfect time to lose yourself around Beaulieu’s serene grounds and gardens. Wander through the Wilderness Garden which perfectly complements the beauty of Palace House, then find your way to the Victorian Flower Garden crammed full of colourful flowers and sweet-smelling roses. Don’t forget, dogs are welcome in our grounds and gardens too!
