Pick up your free 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ booklet from our Visitor Welcome Brewhouse, and see how many you can tick off using helpful clues dotted around our Community Garden.

Here’s a few for inspiration to get you started…

2. Roll down a really big hill. Rolling down a really big hill is perhaps the best way ever invented to get to the bottom. It’s also the most fun.

9. Eat a picnic in the wild. Visit our Stables Café for a Children’s pick and mix Lunch Box, before heading to the wildlife woodland to tuck in, surrounded by nature. After which, you can easily tick two more off the list close by. No. 13 Make a mud creation, using our new mud kitchen, and No. 31 Make friends with a bug, at our bug hotel.

18. Create some wild art. Let your imagination run wild in our community garden, where you’ll find all the materials to create some wild art. Look at what our after school gardeners created out of sweet chestnut catkins.
