This year there will be five zones to visit:

There is also the opportunity to find out more about bees with the Surrey Beekeepers Association and buy local honey, beeswax candles and other bee produce products.
History Zone: As part of Heritage Open Weekend and to celebrate the park’s rich history which dates back to the Henry VIII, The Friends of Nonsuch will be offering guided tours of both Nonsuch Mansion House and the Service Wing Museum and Palace Gallery which houses a stunning replica model of now-vanished Nonsuch Palace (described as nonesuch finer, the origin of the park’s name). Guests will be free to explore the formal gardens while interacting with a Tudor characters who will bring history to life.
Dog Zone: Dog owners can get advice on responsible dog ownership and (here’s an incentive you don’t see every day) pick up some free dog waste bags!
Cycling Zone: Free bike check-ups will be on offer as well as advice on all things cycling.
Fitness Zone: The park plays host to a number of fitness activities and a variety of these will be available to sample on the day.
