February 4 – 5: Spitfire Sit-in Experience 2023Sat 4 Feb 2023 - Sun 5 Feb 2023
It’s those moments when you stop, appreciate your surroundings and take a minute to soak up the atmosphere that make the best memories. At Shuttleworth, you've got the whole estate to discover, explore and enjoy in your own time.
Where to start? You could let the kids run ahead to discover the weird and wonderful sculptures on the trail in our woodland.
Or perhaps sit back and enjoy watching ducks glide across the lake while you have a picnic. Maybe you'll begin your day at the under 12s Play Area, grabbing a barista coffee and locally sourced cake for yourself at the Pod while they conquer all the climbing frames.
