The activities are aimed at youngsters from five to 16 years of age.

Blenheim Palace’s head of operations Emily Hirons said: “The walled garden is an amazing, hidden area which is usually closed to the public and provides the ideal venue for fun outdoor activities like this.”

Places can be booked on the day.
