Information for families visiting the Gardens

The 180 acre Gardens are a wonderful place to let your children explore all year round.
Gardens and play features

The Gardens are full of exciting play features which are suitable for all abilities. Children of all ages love playing on our fabulous tree house, Flying Carpet and new Super Snake swings.

Watch the fish in the pond, run through the Bamboo Tunnels, over the Wobbly Bridge and Board Walk, or play Pokemon Go!.

You may like to try geocaching, an outdoor treasure hunting game. Print the geocaching instructions and bring them with you to the gardens.

Why not head up towards the Woods of the World to investigate our woodlands and visit the rare breed pigs.

We also have a fantastic Education Garden where all ages can learn through play.

There are bamboo chimes, herbs and wildlife to discover in the small education ponds.

We also offer seasonal, self-guided activity trails. The Children’s Education Garden encourages discovery of the natural environment in a fun way.
