Let the play begin!

Do grown ups get to join in the fun?

Yes! William's Den is about giving you and your family an invitation to play together.

There’s something for everyone at William’s Den, and we want the grown ups to enjoy The Den as much as the children.

William's Den is a place where you can make the most of your precious family time, together.

It's been created by the nation's top play experts to challenge children and adults to climb, explore and try new things. We actively encourage you to enjoy it with them!

Our experts recognise that play happens everywhere and all the time. Children have a natural instinct for play and if we are feeling sufficiently inspired, we do too!

Whether in 'The Den' or outside, our outdoor adventure play and landscaped area is a great place to join in with the kids. Or you can just relax and take in the stunning views across the Yorkshire Wolds. From here you can enjoy our freshly made woodfired pizzas and homemade food with all the facilities you need close by.

Should you not wish to purchase a ticket to enter the Indoor and outdoor adventure areas, we also offer free access to all other public areas, The Kitchen Table restaurant, The Shop, loos and the outdoor 'Terrace' area, where you'll find the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or some of our famous homemade ice cream.

Please note that adult supervision is mandatory at William’s Den. We really want you and your family to enjoy the experience together, however there's a minimum supervision ratio of one adult to five children, should all your party not wish to enjoy The Den and the outdoor adventure.
