Details

This year’s summer family event will centre around a secret garden wildlife trail, taking explorers across our park and nature reserve on missions from finding keys to uncovering facts about the different species that call Pensthorpe home.

The fun doesn’t stop there! There will be lots of activities to do as part of the trail; from pond dipping sessions, craft making activities, and storytelling, to bird feeding and educational sessions in their Discovery Centre, not forgetting a trip on our off road experience on the Pensthorpe Explorer*
