Family fun

The Natural Play swing

We have all ages in mind when you come to The Weir Garden and there is always something to see or do.

Natural Play

Go on an adventure to the bottom end of the woodland garden where you can balance and climb your way around our natural play course. Don't forget to see how high you can swing on the rope swing too. The area is suitable for all ages and there's plenty of space for parents to sit and supervise.

Next to the play area are handy benches where you can watch the wildlife on the river or have a picnic. To reach this area with a pushchair ask at reception as some of the steeper routes have steps.

Keep an eye on your picnic

Have you started your '50 things' yet? Whilst around the natural play area, go looking for bugs, build dens and make mud pies. You can tick those off in your scrapbook, remember to pick one up from visitor reception or follow the link below to download the App.

Don't forget on your way around the garden you can learn about the families who lived here, discover the Roman ruins or try identifying the vegetables growing in the walled garden.  There are family trail sheets available in the school holidays too.
