“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

We are delighted to be returning to National Trust’s Morden Hall Park yet again! This time with an interactive adventure trail through their stunning Rose Garden.
A terrible dragon has been terrorising the village of Highcross, taking first their livestock and then their children. Young Sir Henry, the eldest son of local lord, Sir William of Highcross, was the last to die – and since then the village has given up hope. Today, however, it is hoped that a courageous new Challenger will step up and change their fortunes forever…
St George’s Quest takes its participants on an exciting adventure through the beautiful Rose Garden at Morden Hall Park, where they will interact with several interesting characters (such as the Wise Woman, the Squire, and the Shepherd), take on challenges, and solve a variety of riddles and puzzles, arming themselves to finally face the dragon. Those who emerge victorious will be awarded a prize and knighted by St George himself!
You can choose your entry time every 30 minutes from 11am onwards, and it should take an estimated 60-75 minutes to complete your quest. Varying levels of difficulty are available for different ages. Godspeed, and good luck!
