What is there to do?

Blithewold is a stunning family day out set across 33 acres, where kids can immerse themselves in history at one of the finest garden estates in New England.

In fact, Blithewold is one of the most full developed and authentic examples of the Country Place Era, meaning it really is nationally significant - and YOU get to see it first hand!

During your time at Blithewold, kids can explore over a dozen different gardens, as well as a 45 room mansion filled with family heirlooms. In fact, this family called this English style manor house home for over 100 years, so just imagine the stories you will hear!

Kids, as you make your way around the mansion can you just imagine what it would have been like to live there? Pretty different from what you are used to perhaps!

There are some great exhibits that really let you in on what life would have been like int he 20th century.

History, nature, gardens, learning...now you get to be part of American history too!
