Half term family fun at Buckland Abbey

Writing a story

There's so much for all the family to enjoy this spring at Buckland Abbey. From crafts to trails, walks to dressing up, it's a great place for an adventure.

Hunt for beasts

If you go down to the woods today, you'll spot some medieval beasts. Collect your trail book from Visitor Welcome (£1 each) and you can collect your very own bestiary. There's a long and short version available, and dogs are welcome on the walks too.
