During selected school holidays we run “Create & Grow”, where family activities are designed with young children in mind, giving them the opportunity to get creative, learn more about gardening, wildlife and the natural world whilst getting their hands dirty with a range of gardening and craft activities!

Create & Grow was designed to engage children in learning about nature in a fun and exciting way, with a variety of activities the whole family can get involved, run by our friendly staff.

For details about the next Create & Grow, please visit the events pages or ask a member of staff if not listed.

You can hire our restaurant for private functions. We offer an optional catering service. For more details please email or call the centre.
