Half-term adventures

Family walking at Studley Royal Water Garden

Join us this February half-term at Nymans and Ignite your imagination with our light-themed activity trail. Go on an adventure around the garden during the day to see what mystical creatures you can find before darkness falls and they come to life.

Family trail

Join us this February half-term and explore the gardens with our Ignite themed trail where you'll find wonderful creatures waiting for the sun to go down.

A host of mystical creatures are visiting Nymans this half term. As darkness falls, an enchanting glow brings them to life, but can you spot them during the day, before the magic happens?

Sat 19 February to Sun 27 February 10am - 4pm. Free trail, normal admission applies.

50 Things

Even in the winter you can have a go at some of the 50 things to do before you're 11¾ so why not see what you can tick off the list once you've completed the trail?

4. Build a den - The little wooded area behind our second hand bookshop is a great place to build your den.

6. Go welly wandering - We have plenty of puddles to splash in or venture to the woods on a muddy path.

34. Discover wild animal clues -  The muddy paths in the woods are a great place to spot animal footprints.

44. Watch a bird - Come and see what birds are sheltering in the garden.

Fuel for fun 

When you need to refuel and take a break from exploring, visit the Pavilion Café for a selection of homemade hearty treats. With a delicious range of cakes and bakes, sandwiches and drinks, warming up couldn’t be easier. We’ve got a kids menu and handy pick ‘n mix packed lunches to satisfy all the family, even the smallest members.

If treats are the theme of the day, then don't forget to pop into the shop to find lots of pocket sized toys and confectionary.
