Pirate Ship and Pop-up Beach

Ahoy mi hearties – All hands on deck!


Bolton Abbey Pirate Ship and Pop up Beach

Saturday 10 July – Sunday 5 September 2021

Our magnificent pirate ship will be returning from the high seas this summer and will be moored on the ‘pop-up’ beach on the bank of the River Wharfe, outside the Cavendish Pavilion.
Let your little ones imagine they have taken to the high seas by captaining our wooden galleon. Once on deck little pirates can enjoy the ship’s slide, climbing net, climbing wall, pirates’ pole and ship’s wheel! And of course there is space to build sandcastles galore!
Parents can watch their children playing whilst enjoying refreshments at the Cavendish Pavilion.
Don’t forget your bucket and spade!
