Outdoor adventures this May half term at Dyrham Park

Families playing at Dyrham Park

There’s plenty of outdoor activities and a trail to get your young ones out into nature this half term.

There will be crafts set up to create natural beauty using eco-friendly resources for you to take home to display. Come along to discover tree tapestry or create your own egg carton flower, echoing the natural beauty of your surroundings. These crafts will take place between 11am and 2pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Children's nature trails are planned on the Tuesday and Thursday (26 and 28) at 11am-12pm and 2-3pm where you can explore the park through family activities on one of our popular guided discovery trails. These will start from visitor reception and are free of charge, though normal admission applies.

Both weekends there will be activities based around 50 things to do before you're 11 and ¾. 

A fairy woodland trail is also being planned for May and June with a chance to spot fairy houses dotted around Dyrham Park's garden and parkland. Despite new discoveries in science and discovery in the 17th century, there were still lots of deep-held magical beliefs and recent finds have alluded to fairies here.

Outdoor Visitor Exprience Office Libby Woolfrey said: 'Half term's a brilliant time to come and explore nature at Dyrham Park as the days are getting longer and longer and the sun should be out! We'll be running activities come rain or shine and we're hoping for a fun and nature packed week.'
