Hatton Country World
Set in the heart of the countryside just outside Warwick, Hatton Country World is a haven for those that want to avoid the crowds in the city centre and get back to nature. Visitors can enjoy a unique Victorian shopping experience in rural surroundings, walk the nature trail to the locks forming part of the historic Grand Union Canal, or experience a fun family day out at the farm.
At Hatton Farm Village, animals roam free and a programme of activities is geared towards learning more about the daily workings of a farm and the lives of its four-legged inhabitants. Kids can visit the guinea pig village with its 300 furry residents, ride a miniature combine harvester or pan for gold. Special events taking place on a regular basis include sheep races and the hilarious "Daft Duck Trials".
Unusual handmade gifts and Victorian antiques can be purchased at the adjoining Hatton Shopping Village where 25 specialist shops and boutiques in converted Victorian farm buildings line quaint streets. Gifts on offer include stained glasswork, handmade stencils, stone crafts, wooden toys and traditional sweets.
