Visited Upton Country Park on a Segway Experience, which was excellent and took us throughout the whole park, which Is a good way to admire the beauty of the park. I would like to go back to the park in May to appreciate it in full bloom. The car park can get very busy, so take this into account.

Christmas wreath workshop in the big house last weekend was brilliant, excellent value for money- mulled wine, mince pies, tea coffee and biscuits and you got to take the wreath home, all for £20....

We have lived in the area for a while and missed this gem of a place. Good bird watching, a nice not too long walk and a well priced cafe. The soup was tasty, the pasties are good according to the men in the party! They employ people with learning difficulties which is also good. You can eat in or... More

Upton Country Park is a beautiful place to visit. With it's luscious greenery and wildlife, it's a quiet and majestic place to visit. I recommend it for families of all ages! The tearooms situated near the entrance of the park are great! Prices expected of a tearoom, great atmosphere and happy, friendly and kind staff! Great to grab a drink... More
