Family fun at Quarry Bank

Children playing on the mill meadow

Visit Quarry Bank from 23 July – 4 September and delight as your little ones discover how to love and care for nature through play. They will marvel as they meet native creatures, get excited making eco electricity, and become mesmerised as they visit some of the world’s great natural habitats in our giant inflatable dome. Complete our obstacle course to save the world and be amazed at the sights and sounds of nature from our pavilion of play.
