Activities and Family Activities in Enfield
You can begin at the Jacobean Forty Hall — the kind of country pile you would never equate with the word 'Enfield' — and yet here it is larger than life, even boasting the odd Civil War reenactment. On the outskirts of Enfield Town is Trent Park, "413 acres of rolling meadows, enchanting brooks, exquisite lakes, ancient woodland, and imposing historical sites" (it also allegedly has a moat haunted by an earl).
Or, stretch your legs along the New River at Gentleman's Row. In fact, the more you explore it, the more you find beauty in Enfield; from the town centre fountain dripping with ornate ironwork, to the white slatted, cherry blossom-ensconced home of Joseph Whitaker — original publisher of Whitaker's Almanack.
There’s so many opportunities to get outside and exercise, whether it’s kayaking, cycling, walking or windsurfing, Enfield is a haven for visitors looking for a little excitement on their holiday.
