Osterley Park and House

KidRated’s Osterley Park and House Top Tips:

  • Best for kids & teens: Hire bikes and explore the gardens at Osterley
  • Best for parents: It’s a National Trust site, so comes with benefits if you’re a member
  • Top tip: Check the weather before you go to make the most of the outsidey bits

Osterley Park and Gardens nestled in West London, are a National Trust property offering a mix of history, outdoor activities, and beautiful scenery perfect for families.


Firstly, the expansive gardens and parkland are perfect for running around and exploring. Kids will love the wide-open spaces, perfect for a game of tag or hide and seek. For a bit more adventure, you can hire bikes and explore the picturesque trails together.


Next, check out the table tennis tables in the grounds. It’s a fun way for the whole family to enjoy some friendly competition. Plus, the park hosts ParkPlay sessions, which are free, family-friendly games and activities every Saturday. It’s a wonderful way to get everyone moving and have fun together.


During school holidays, Osterley Park and Gardens really come to life with a variety of special activities. From crafting workshops to nature trails, there’s always something exciting happening.


After all that activity, why not relax with a picnic in the scenic park. There’s plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a meal in the fresh air.


Fun fact: Osterley Park is often used as a movie set. While the film Belle was set at Kenwood House, much of the interiors were actually filmed here! The Dark Knight Rises and the TV hit Doctor Thorne were both filmed here. The money raised from filming is put straight back into the property so it can continue to be a great visitor attraction.

I actually really enjoy National Trust houses so this was right up my street. I went with my sister and we had a really nice day out. We brought a little picnic with us and explored the house. We’re both quite into history so it was cool seeing such an old house and learning its history. The added bonus was seeing the interiors where a lot of Belle was filmed – we love that movie!
