The Nellie The Newt Trail

We need some help in order to complete our new newt exhibition! Can you help?

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

This children's trail is located in our castle grounds, and involves finding 10 “Nellie The Newt” markers.

You will need to find these markers and write down the neat newt fact that is on each marker.

Once you have found all 10 of our “Nellie The Newt” markers, and written down all 10 of our neat newt facts, you will be ready to find the Newt King, and answer his question.

If you successfully complete our trail, there will be a small prize awaiting you when you hand your trail back in to our Welcome Team.
