Half-term fun at Nymans

Children in long grass in the garden

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

Design your garden trail

Spot the watering cans in the garden to find out about some of the different plants and flowers we grow. Collect the names and symbols of each plant and then choose your favourites to design your own garden or flower bed. 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.

Spring spotting 

With so many things to spot in the garden and woods we have seasonal spotter activities for you to enjoy. Be a spring detective or see who can find all the items first on our eye spy challenge. Pick up your activities from the welcome hub.

Come and see what you can spot while exploring

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.

Come and create your own picture from natural materials
