May half term: floral lotto trail at Calke Abbey

Get out in nature this half term on a fun family trail, inspired by the floral loto game in Calke's collection.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The floral loto game from Calke's collection has been reproduced to put your plant knowledge to the test.

Print off your game card at home and then set off on an adventure to match the flowers on your sheet to those hiding around the Stableyards and Pleasure Grounds.

But there's a slight twist! Each flower has a missing part, so don your detective hat and see how many you can pair.

Download your game card from the family article under the 'Things to see and do' section on Calke's webpage.
