Learning at Morden Hall Park

We offer a range of informal and formal learning activities, from family fun craft days to formal led school sessions. We aim to bring the park and its story to life through interesting and exciting learning resources in our atmospheric Snuff Mill.

Please note: Our Learning programme is very popular and we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Our led visits are fully booked for the summer term, but there is still limited availability to book self-led visits during this period, for which schools need to have Education Group Membership of the National Trust. All led and self-led visits must be booked in advance with the Learning team.

Self-led river dipping and pond dipping in the wetlands (ie from the wetland boardwalk) is not currently permitted. Dipping must be led by a National Trust staff member for safety and conservation reasons.

Led Sessions

Our sessions are designed to complement the National Curriculum, linking with science, geography, history, design and technology and art, with sessions for early  years  through to Key Stage 3. Our self-led 'You Can Do It' sessions offer suggested lesson plans and equipment loan. All visits must be booked in advance.

Self-led visits

You can also book a visit to take part in your own activities without a National Trust leader. We can give some advice on how to structure your own visit to Morden Hall Park. Self-led sessions must be booked in advance and groups must be Education Group Members.
