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.

Get crafty

Love getting creative? Why not join in with one of the craft workshops running in the schoolroom this spring? Naturemake are coming along to help you create your own magical works of art on 28 and 29 May, Claire Packer will be running a family felt activity on 31 May, and you can learn how to make rag rugs with Debbie Hastings on 4 June. Activities start from £2 + normal admission.
