We have an event packed season ahead to suit all the family - from the Kite Festival on 3 Sunday August to Santa's House at Christmas. Not to be missed.

What's new

We have teamed up with local company Segway Express to offer you a slightly different way to explore Downhill this summer.

Dust off the wellies and explore Downhill at this beautiful time of year. February will see the beginning of the snowdrops and the views from the temple are simply stunning.
