Poster photo for Stansted Unlocked


Stansted Park returns with a weekend-long extravaganza blending history, cricket and fun in a West Sussex country setting.​

After extended works to revitalise the visitor experience, Stansted Park will be throwing open its doors on July 10 and 11 to provide two days of fun-filled family entertainment as part of the grand re-opening to bring the estate back to life.

Visitors will be treated to a wealth of historic interest and activities with displays that reveal the colourful history of the estate and the Ponsonby family including the sword that General Sir William Ponsonby used at the Battle of Waterloo. Outside in the park, the Waterloo theme will continue with reenactors from the Napoleonic period showing off their cavalry and musketry skills, and demonstrating what it was like to live in a military camp on the eve of the battle.

With true British style and pageantry, the world-renowned Band of the Grenadier Guards will perform the spectacular ceremony of Beating Retreat in front of the mansion.

Sporting entertainment over this exciting weekend includes cricket matches featuring the Royal Lancers, I Zingari and Stansted Park’s very own team.

With their all-inclusive ticket visitors can also delight in a jazz band, archery as well as the maze and light railway.

Join in the fun and help celebrate Stansted Unlocked!

- Your chance to explore a revitalised Stansted House with new displays
