National Trust - Kingston Lacy

A lavish family home built to resemble an Italian Palace in the rural Dorset countryside. There’s plenty to see from grand, beautifully detailed carvings to intimate family souvenirs. Enjoy a picnic on the south lawn or let the children run wild in the nearby play areas or on the new Woodland Trail (accessible by foot, bike, buggy and off-road wheelchair). Explore the house and garden with family activity booklets that offer creative and interactive ways to celebrate what each season brings to Kingston lacy. Add a little magic to half-terms, holidays and special times of year with an exciting programme of events for all the family. Don’t forget to pop into the restaurant to try our home-made cake and prize-winning scones.
