Take along your 50 Things booklet to the Welly Walk and tick off some of those activities such as building a den, bird spotting and making a trail with sticks. The Welly Walk is a wonderful woodland area, full of adventure and a great place to run free, discover wildlife and have fun.

Jubilee fun at Packwood

To mark the Jubilee there will be a royal themed 'spot the' for children to discover on the Welly Walk, and over in the house find out all about Packwood's royal connections from the portrait of Henry VIII to Queen Mary’s royal visit and Queen Elizabeth's heraldic coat of arms in the stained glass.

Make your day extra royal with your own personalised Jubilee crown, which you can download from this link.

The lake is the ideal place to spot a variety of birds from Canada geese, moor hens and our our native greylag geese. It's also a perfect place to go on a bug hunt, turn over a few logs and see what creepy crawlies you can find scurrying around in the mud.
