The Beach: Get Involved

The Beach

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.

No tickets required, this man made beach features 15 tonnes of sand, with a beautiful Goan theme!

Bring your own buckets and spades or buy a set to keep from the Box Office or the Café Bar.

All the fun of the seaside… without the drive!

Car parking is free at Norden Farm, and the building and Beach is fully accessible for those with additional needs.

There is something to do at Norden Farm every day of the long summer holiday.

Our everyday activities are very popular throughout the holiday, so we recommend pre-booking online or giving the Box Office a call on 01628 788997.
