A summer full of fun on Dunstable Downs
We are having an incredible summer weatherwise and we have planned plenty to keep your family happy here, on Dunstable Downs
Family fun this summer
Whatever you enjoy doing with your family and friends, you can do at Dunstable Downs. Make the most of this amazing weather by having a family picnic but please remember - no BBQs! You can bring your own food or buy something tasty from the View Café.
Fun for the energetic
Those with energy to burn will love our natural play area in Chute Wood. Purpose built with logs and wood from the estate, this area is safe yet challenging for children of different ages.
During August there will be workshops for children where they can learn to make a simple kite or get creative with natural materials to create a piece of art.
Tracing your ancestors
You may know that there are plenty of signs that people many thousands of years ago lived on Dunstable Downs. Five Knolls is one place where earthworks remain showing where they lived and buried their dead. This is the only scheduled monument in Bedfordshire from this period.
During the last week in August we are having a trail so that you can find out more about these ancient tribes and possibly track which tribe your own ancestors came from.
