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 - brand new for 2018!

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.
