Spring is always a treat for the senses, whether you are listening to bird song, smelling flowers as they bloom or noticing blossom burst into colour.

This nature based sensory trail comprises 10 activities, with an activity sheet, pencil and reward. This year’s trail is taking place around Belton’s parkland. Dogs on leads welcome.

Before visiting, please check local and national government guidance on travelling.
