Half term fun at Anglesey Abbey
If you're looking for a family day out, there's lots to see and do at Anglesey Abbey during half term.
Daily from 16 - 24 February
Kick start your family fun by picking up a Woodland Explorer's Journal to begin your adventure. Wrap up warm, put your wellies on and grab a warming drink from Redwoods to keep you warm as you explore all Hoe Fen has to offer.
The trail combines three fun activities to help you make the most of your visit to Anglesey Abbey.
It begins on the journey towards Hoe Fen. There are ten friendly forest creatures hiding on the woodland path on your way – can you spot them?
Get closer to nature and use your sensory skills to explore the area once you’ve arrived with our Sensory Stroll. How many different textures can you spot? What does nature sound like? Be sure to keep your ears open!
There’s also a fun Winter Woodland Hunt to complete. With three different difficulty levels, how many of the eight features can you find?
There is a suggested donation of £1 for this family trail. All funds raised will go back into keeping this special place alive for future generations to enjoy, thank you.
Head to the Hoe Fen Wildlife Discovery Area for a real family adventure in the woods.
Record what you see from the Wildlife Watch Hut, climb to the top of the giant Limetree Lookout Treehouse, build a den in the Den Building Area, or tell a story in the Story Telling circle.
Explore the House: Changing Rooms
Open daily from 11am - 4pm (Last entry 3pm)
Just how do you go about a heritage redecoration project? Head inside the House to find out how we're restoring the Living Room and Long Gallery back to how Lord Fairhaven would have had it.
There'll be book binding activity in the Library, sharing the history and story behind book binding as an art, and showing off some of the beautiful examples in Lord Fairhaven's own library. Why not have a go at making your own?
