Roll up, roll up! Take a trip back to Witley's Victorian heyday this May bank holiday. We have the best of British fun and historical high-jinx in store, with Victorian tales, a Punch and Judy show, traditional music and more. 

As you explore the beautiful grounds of Witley Court, experience the games enjoyed by families in days gone by – including the chance to have a go on our swing boats, watch a spot of juggling, or challenge your friends on the tin can alley.

Join our fairy hunters, Thadeus and Eliza, as they take you on a fairy hunt around the woodland and spot entertainers Philleas and Monty on their penny farthings around the site. Or visit our potion master to make your very own magic tonic, and learn the world’s greatest magic trick! A grand family day out awaits...
