Fight off the boredom this summer with plenty of silly fun for everyone

Summer is just around the corner and we have a whole programme of fun activities to keep any boredom at bay! We're celebrating our weird and wonderful history with quirky crafts to make, mysterious trail challenges and traditional garden games. Don't miss Nature Club Mondays where we're off into the garden to see what natural fun we can make for ourselves - leave those gadgets at home!

With all this plus new architecture tours, family trails and weekend servant and nature challenges there’s something to do at every day.
