Children's Activity Event


Get closer to nature with our handy one-stop shop for young explorers. Explorer Backpacks are now available with everything a young explorer needs to discover the secrets of our formal gardens. Learn how to use a compass, go pond dipping, scour the treetops for birds and identify the creepy crawlies in the undergrowth.

Backpacks are free to hire but we do ask for a £5 deposit, fully refundable at the end of your visit.
You can pick up your Explorer Backpack from the garden shelter on your way into the gardens.
Booking not needed.
