There are job opportunities at a new adventure play area set to open at Blenheim Palace this Spring.

Set inside its historic walled gardens, The Lost Garden will include quirky wooden structures, interactive water features, play trails and winding walkways which celebrate the Palace, its surrounding parkland and the natural world.

The new attraction includes a viewing platform, an interactive sensory garden walk, and an oversized kitchen garden-inspired secret play area - including giant carrots, sunflowers and plant pots.

At the centre of The Lost Garden will be a replica of Vanbrugh’s Grand Bridge and a large seating terrace overlooking the central water play feature.
