Have you got what it takes to be an explorer?

Explorer Activity Days give you the chance to develop new skills: use a compass to navigate your way around our grounds, use flags to send signals across the meadow, create your own map, learn how to follow a trail using secret signs, plus explorer craft activities using natural materials.

Activities are suitable for 7–12-year-olds; children need to be accompanied by an adult. One accompanying adult required for every 4 children booked.

Activities will go ahead whatever the weather except in the case extreme weather. Please come dressed to be outside for the whole session. Please bring a packed lunch.

Adult tickets: £5

Child ticket: £20
