Half-term fun at Nymans

Children in long grass in the garden

The garden and woods are perfect for some exploring. With an abundance of colourful plants, carpets of woodland flowers and beautiful views there's something to keep everyone entertained this half-term.

Making faces family trail

While exploring the gardens imagine you are a portrait artist and search for colours and textures you could use in a painting. The flowers and plants will provide lots of inspiration and you could collect some fallen petals to make your own face.

Hunt for different faces on the statues and gargoyles. Who can do the best impression of one?  

A trail for our younger visitors to explore within our gardens. Pick up the trail from our welcome hub from 10am to 3.30pm. £1 per trail, normal admission applies.

50 Things

Spring is a great time to have a go at some of the 50 things to do before you're 11¾. Pick up a magnifying glass and try a spot of bug hunting - look out for butterflies resting on flowers or ants marching across a wall. 

The different coloured and shaped petals which have fallen to the ground are perfect for creating your own natural art picture, or grab a stick and thread them on as you wander through the garden.

For more ideas pick up your own scrapbook from our welcome hub and collect some stickers.
