Fountains Abbey: Explore in nature this May half term
This May half term is all about fun and playing in nature here at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. This 800-acre site is bursting with life and splashing its colour. How do you play in nature? Do you run and jump through the long swaying grass? Or do you sit still and watch the nature around you, spotting a frog in the water, watching the birds fly overhead or seeing little beasties flee as you lift a log? Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal has so much for you to explore.
Get crafting in Swanley Grange with our free family friendly drop-in sessions every day from 27 May – 4 June. Design and create your own bug house using sustainable and natural materials. Once completed, explore the estate and gather materials to go inside. Who knows which bugs will make their new home there? We have quiet crafting sessions daily between 2-3pm for those who might find quiet crafting a better experience.
Join in with the family trail, every day from 27 May – 4 June, exploring the nature in the deer park. Discover and learn where different animals and insects live. What beasties will you find living in the grassland, woodland or freshwater habitats?
Walk with the wildlife volunteers on Saturday 27 May to find out more about the Red, Sika and Fallow deer that call Studley Royal deer park their home.
There are acres of space for little legs to run riot at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Wobble, jump and climb your way through the play area. Why not take a walk through the summer garden or climb to the high ride to see some of the best views?
