Hawkstone Park Follies

Attraction

Hawkstone Park FolliesHawkstone Park Follies

The Follies is a fantasyland of cliffs, crags, caves, deep woods and a series of extraordinary monuments built more than 200 years ago. After years of neglect, the magical landscape was lovingly restored and reopened in 1993. ‘Striking scenes and terrific grandeur' were the words Samuel Johnson used to describe The Follies of Hawkstone Park when he visited them in 1774.

Exploring the 100 acre site can take up to three hours, if you take the full route. Toilets are available halfway along the circular route and refreshments are available in the summer months. Many picnic tables are situated along the way and hot and cold drinks and a wide range of snacks can be enjoyed at the Greenhouse Tearoom and Visitor Centre situated at the beginning and end of all the routes.

Please bring a torch for the tunnels and caves. They are available to purchase in the gift shop.

Author's Review

For centuries people have been enjoying the Follies here at Hawkstone, not forgetting of course the Country Park. Unfortunately as we go round assessing these attractions we have a very short time window, but I have to be honest when I say this, that I could have literally spent all day here. With a well-stocked Tearoom, there is no reason why you can't spend at least half a day here, and after spending some time here, it's quite easy to see why people from all walks of life just simply love to return here time and time again. If you have been to visit something as old as The Giants Causeway in Antrim, Northern Ireland, you will be a huge fan of these follies. They are both spine tingling fantastical and different to any other follies of their type, and one thing I can guarantee is that you will of never witnessed another sight quite like this.
