On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

Naughty Christmas elves have hidden the gifts from the Twelve Days of Christmas carol around Great Linford Manor Park! Can you find all 12 doors and reveal all 12 gifts?

On this self-guided trail, children aged 3+ and families can search within a small area of the Manor Park to discover the hidden 'fairy doors'. Each is painted blue. By opening the door you will reveal one of the gifts from the famous carol The Twelve Days of Christmas. Please remember to close the doors again for the enjoyment of other families.

A trail activity sheet is available to download here, which may complement your visit. 

The trail takes place on grass which may be muddy if the weather is wet. Please wear sensible shoes and dress for the weather. Dogs are permitted in the park, but please keep them on-lead for the comfort of other visitors. 


The closest parking to the trail area is at Great Linford Memorial Hall, off Marsh Drive. Click here for a What3Words location. 


The trail takes place on grass, which may be muddy if the weather is wet. Accessible parking spaces are available at the above location.
