23 – 31 October, daily, 10-4pm

Autumn is a beautiful time to visit the Garden and see the colours of the trees transformed to gorgeous reds and oranges. This year, children can take part in the Spooky Spider trail created by local author and illustrator Hannah Shaw. There are fun spider characters to spot and eight-legged facts a plenty! Families can also enjoy our maze and rustic woodland play area.
(Psst…no real spiders were used in the making of this trail and it isn’t spooky – just lots of fun!).
Our cafe will be serving light lunches, delicious cakes, freshly-ground coffee, marshmallow and cream topped hot chocolate and a selection of speciality teas.

The trail is only 50p with standard admission and this includes a small prize. No prebooking is required.

Design your own spooky spider and win an Annual Family Membership to Painswick Rococo Garden!
After you’ve completed the trail, you can design your own Spooky Spider! We can’t wait to see your designs – you’ll find the entry form at the bottom of your trail sheet.
The competition winner will be selected by Hannah Shaw and Dominic Hamilton (Rococo Garden Director). You have until 30 November 2021 to get your entries to us – you can pop them in the box behind the Welcome Desk during your visit or post them to:
Spooky Spider Competition, Painswick Rococo Garden, Painswick, Gloucestershire GL6 6TH.
