Winter family fun at Greenway

During weekends in December, Greenway is open with loads for families to see and do. From exploring the woodland garden where leaves crunch underfoot, to completing a trail in the house this Christmas.

 

Getting in the Christmas spirit

The house will be decorated for a 1950s family Christmas throughout December, with retro decorations, presents wrapped and toys waiting to be played with. But there's a mystery afoot, with clues here and there - can you find the pudding?   

 

Exploring the garden

The woodland garden is perfect for a winter walk. Crunching through leaves, walking through tall grasses and bamboo, and splashing in muddly puddles all keep kids entertained. From the Boathouse you could count the boats on the river, which is always bustling with activity; trawlers, river cruises, a paddle steamer and kayakers can regularly be seen. It's also a great place to watch wildlife, such as the occasional seal in the river. The Battery is complete with cannon, which captures little-one's imaginations.
