Join us for an adventure in nature at The Weir Garden. Discover our family-friendly trail with fun activities for you to do along the way. Complete the trail and earn your chocolate reward at the end. Remember to book your tickets in advance before visiting.

Inspired by the '50 things to do before you’re 11¾’ guide, our spring trail leads families around both the riverside garden and walled garden to look for nature-related activities. It’s lovely here at this time of year, with hundreds of flowers in bloom and the tranquil River Wye bubbling through the garden.

You can pick your trail pack up from Visitor Reception when you arrive. To minimise human contact, we’ve prepared everything you need to grab and go. Inside your trail pack you’ll find an activity sheet, pencil and chocolate prize - non-chocolate alternative prizes will also be available upon request. The trail is £2.50 per child and is available until the end of May half term. Please note we are a cash-only property at The Weir and are unable to take card payments.

You don’t need to book your trails, but you will need to book your visit. To manage visitor numbers so that social distancing can be ensured for the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors, the pre-booking system still applies. Booking will provide access to the property, not the spring activities in nature trail, which can be purchased on the day.

Tickets are released every Friday; you can book your visit here.

If you're planning on visiting with children over the holidays, you can also print off a 'Kid's Nature Conservationist' worksheet at home to bring along with you. This worksheet helps children understand the importance of staying on the pathways to help protect bulbs and advises on the best spots in the garden to sit and watch nature. Nature Conservationist (PDF / 0.55859375MB) download
