Families have a great time here at the Botanic Garden.

Why? Well, there’re lots of things to do - have a look at this great short film to get an idea (it features well known comedian Rhod Gilbert having fun with kids here).

Finally, we offer 100 Days of Family Activities throughout the year – usually running from 12-4pm, we offer a variety of different activities on a range of topics to keep your family entertained and informed. Check out our events page to see what’s on.

If you’re coming as a family, we think you’ll enjoy this Magical Mystery Tour.  It’s a fun trail of the weird and wonderful aspects of the Garden. Be prepared to be asked to kiss a loved one, hug a healing stone, make a wish, play a tune and listen for an echo.

If your child just wants to play, not only do we have a huge amount of space run around in, we have our Roots and Shoots Adventure Zone, a willow play area with slides, climbing frames, tunnels and musical blocks.
