There will be another autism friendly early opening at Knebworth House later this month.

Following its previous successes, Knebworth House is delighted to announce the return of its autism friendly early opening on Wednesday, August 30 during the summer holidays.

The Gardens, Park, Adventure Playground and Dinosaur Trail at the Hertfordshire stately home will open early at 8.30am for families with children and adults on the autistic spectrum, with learning disabilities or sensory and communication disorders.

The aim is to give families the chance to enjoy the facilities in a quieter, more peaceful environment.

Plus, back by popular demand - and as part of Knebworth's Summer of Activities - is Michael the Dinosaur Explorer.

He will be leading visitors on an adventure through the Gardens, Wilderness and Dinosaur Trail starting at 9.30am from the gift shop, which will last approximately 45 minutes.

This is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the 28-acres of tranquil formal gardens, spacious deer park, Dinosaur Trail with 72 life-sized prehistoric creatures, relaxing Garden Terrace Tea Room, and the Adventure Playground without the loud and busy crowds.




The Adventure Playground at Knebworth Park was designed with a strong consideration of inclusion for all, such as a roundabout with its own wheelchair station, a nest swing and sensory equipment.

To attend, simply purchase a Knebworth Park & Gardens admission ticket for Wednesday, August 30 either online at a discounted rate of £12.50 or full price £13.50 on arrival.

From 10.30am the Park, Gardens & Playground will be open as usual to the public, but early visitors are welcome to stay until close at 5pm. The Garden Terrace Tea Room will open from 9am.
