May half term at Erddig

Join us at Erddig this May half term (Saturday 25 May - Sunday 2 June) as we celebrate Children's Gardening Week with a number of fun events the whole family can get involved with.

Reconnect with nature as you explore the Grade-I Iisted garden, passing the beautiful borders and bedding displays bursting with spring colour.

On 28 and 30 May only, from 11am - 3pm, have a go at rock art painting, seed potting and bug hunting. Once you're done, be sure to stop by Wolf's Den natural play area where there’s even more fun to be had. Enjoy den building, have a go on the rope swing, test your balance on the beams and more.

Activities are free, but normal admission charges apply. National Trust members and under 5s enter for free.

It’s time to hop, skip and jump around. Balance on beams, build dens and climb in our natural playground nestled in Big Wood. Whatever the weather, Wolf’s Den is a great space to let off steam.
