Pirates & Mermaids Treasure Hunt Day

10am - 3pm

Saturday 24 June

Calling all Pirates and Mermaids! Come and explore the beautiful Rippon Lea Estate with a specially themed treasure hunt.

Once upon a time, Rippon Lea’s gardens provided the backdrop to the games and adventures of children who lived in its magnificent mansion. Now it’s your turn to enjoy the sprawling estate with a specially themed treasure hunt.

Bring the whole family along for this fun filled day out exploring the sweeping lawns, beautiful trees, a lake, a look-out tower and a magnificent fernery all while searching for the clues on your treasure map. A special treat awaits at the end of the trail.

Let’s see your best costumes! Come dressed as Pirates and Mermaids and share them with us through our social media channels.

The treasure map is available to collect from the ticket office and is included in the regular entry cost for Rippon Lea.
