School holiday fun at Nymans

Group of friends chatting

Get set, go this summer at Nymans with plenty of active challenges to keep the little ones entertained in the holidays.

Challenge yourself and the kids to complete an obstacle course, learn a new game or try and win a crazy race in the Get set, go! challenge zone.

There’s a story trail to follow around the garden too, and the children’s stage in 'The Play Glade', our new natural play space, is the perfect place to bring your tale to life.

Or simply bring a picnic, sit back and enjoy the views with special later evening openings in July. The Pavilion café opens at 10.00am and serves tempting treats and light bites throughout the day, and the Horsebox in the garden has everything you might need for an impromptu picnic, including delicious Sussex ice cream.

50 Things

If you wish to explore nature a little closer you could try some of the 50 Things activities. Here are a few you could do while in the gardens this summer:

18. Create some wild art - the colourful fallen petals are perfect for creating your own natural picture. Collect some you find while in the gardens and use them to make a collage or even a sculpture.

24. Go barefoot - the soft grass is a good spot for having a try at going on a bare foot walk.

31. Make friends with a bug - the meadow is a good place to watch and listen to all the insects that are attracted to the grasses, see if you can spot a grasshopper jumping. Look out for butterflies and see if you can watch one resting on a flower.

33. Go cloud watching - If it's a clear day take a few moments to sit and see what you can spot in the sky.
