All of the gardens have been designed to educate and inspire all who visit them, all the while offering a complete range of innovative indoor and outdoor learning experiences for all ages!
You can spend the morning strolling around the Woodland Walk and Bird Habitats, perfect for keeping those keen eyes peeled to see what kinds of birds you'll be able to spot!
