Family in Gardens

Children on swing

The Gardens are a wonderful environment for families. The exciting play features are suitable for all abilities and include a fabulous tree house, a relaxing flying carpet swing and bamboo tunnels with a wobbly bridge. We also offer seasonal, self-guided activity trails. The Children’s Education Garden encourages discovery of the natural environment in a fun way.

Most activities are free with admission and unless stated there is no need to book in advance.

Sorry no ball games, children's scooters and bikes, except in the outside picnic areas.

What's on for children and families



Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices such as mobile phones, iPads or GPS receivers such as Garmins etc. Inside the containers are log books the players can write in, and small treasures which regular geocachers swap and trade so the box contents are ever-changing!
