The Beach

About

The Maidenhead Beach at Norden Farm runs annually throughout the school summer holidays. Free to play on, just roll up and relax at a beachside café table while the little ones play in the sand.

Join in craft or storytelling sessions in the specially designed story den or get inspired by our Galley Goan Chill Out Lie back and enjoy projections in the fisherman’s hut or go fish in shiny waters and add your creations to the walls.

This gallery installation includes work made with local schools through Norden Farm’s Farm Out programme and with young people through our Young Creatives programme supported by the Spoore Merry and Rixman Foundation.

This year's beach is inspired by the laid back tropical paradise that is Goa!

Family films are screened throughout the holidays, and the Café Bar is open for lunch, teas, coffees, ice creams and treats. A children’s menu and special children’s picnic bags are also available.


Join us for the Grand Opening on Wednesday 24 July from 10am

The Maidenhead Beach at Norden Farm is open Monday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm, until Sunday 25 August.

Take part in our drop-in Kite Making Workshop running from 11.15am - 1.15pm.


A photographer representing Norden Farm may be present throughout the summer holiday at The Maidenhead Beach.

These images may be published by Norden Farm in the press and on social media platforms. Images may also be used for external distribution and used in marketing materials including, but not limited to, brochures, flyers, adverts and banners.

If you are visiting The Maidenhead Beach and would rather not be in our photos, please speak to our Box Office team when you arrive.


What else is on offer at Norden Farm this summer?

This Summer take part in our Community Kite Festival on Sunday 1 September.
