Painshill, in Surrey, invites families to enjoy an enchanting fairy tale adventure in a landscape full of stunning autumnal colour.
Wooden fairy doors will return this autumn to add a touch a magic to the beautiful woodlands, lake and gardens at Painshill. Ignite your child’s imagination and discover the secret worlds created by the fairies. See how many doors you can spot.
Comments from visitors to Painshill’s Fairy Doors Trail in 2022 included:
“We had such a wonderful time and found nearly all of them on the map”
“Thank you so much and what a wonderful activity to do”
“My granddaughter was so excited and never stopped talking the whole time!”
Painshill was designed in the 18th century as a living work of art. A walking route takes the visitor past a series of stunning views, bridges and follies which have featured in many popular television shows, music videos and films.
Families, and those young at heart, can follow the trail to discover the tiny doors hiding throughout the historic landscape. Whilst at Painshill, don’t forget to visit the incredible Grotto, covered in sparkling crystals which shimmer in the light and reflect beautifully against the waters.
As you wander the route, you will be surrounded by autumn colour enabling you to soak up amazing views, crunch through fallen leaves, get back to nature and celebrate the season.
The fairy door trail will be running from Saturday October 21 until Sunday November 12 and is included in general admission tickets. It is recommended to book in advance at painshill.co.uk.
