Discover the play area.
Don’t miss a trip to the play area this spring. There’re things to wobble along, jump over and climb on…you’ll find a wooden abbey, a woodland house, scramble nets and posts, swings, fireman’s poles, a slide, a roundabout, a gigantic rope bridge and a huge zip wire for the most daring adventurers of all.
The visitor centre restaurant will be open for eating-in and takeaway. Baby change, toilets and accessible toilets are just two minutes away – perfect for if little legs can’t go very far.
