Immerse yourself in nature and follow the clues around the gardens on our Nature Art trail, running every day during May half term (Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June, 10am to 4pm). Once you've completed the different activities, head to Visitor Reception to collect your prize at the end. Trails are £2.50 each and include a prize.
