Our education team will be running twice weekly outdoor activity sessions during the summer holidays. Each week will feature a different activity, and sessions will run on Mondays and Wednesdays (10:30am-12pm or 1-2:30pm).

From pond dipping to minibeast hunting and den building, there is always something fun happening at Ashridge for the family to take part in.

Sessions are aimed at children aged 4-10 and also include a nature themed craft in the visitor centre classroom.
