50 things to do

Come to Carding Mill Valley and you can do lots of the 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾.

From climbing a big hill to catching a fish in a net there's plenty to keep the family entertained.

 

Events

We've got a packed events programme here, so there's definitely something to suit all the family. Throughout the year we run bird watching courses, star gazing events, geology walks and much more.

Learning

We welcome over 30,000 students to the valley every year and offer a variety of programmes from self-led ones to those led by our team.

We have also recently opened a campsite exclusively for Duke of Edinburgh students.

Go on an adventure

Pick up an Adventure Trail leaflet and get exploring.

The leaflet will give you lots of ideas for activities, including paddling the stream, bird watching in the hide, pulling yourself up the rope pull and den building.

You can even have a go at finding your own route to the reservoir across bridges, through bracken and up slopes.
