Living with Birds

Celebrate British garden birds during the February half term holiday in this fun family event in conjunction with the RSPB. Coinciding with National Nest Box Week, visitors can learn how to help birds nest, survive and thrive in their gardens at home. 

A bird box building workshop* will provide kids with the chance to contribute to the conservation effort in the UK by putting a nest box in their gardens, also providing the pleasure of observing any breeding birds that come to the garden (*additional fee).

Children can join a FREE bird themed craft workshop and find out more about different species of British birds on a bird spotting trail in the grounds. Visitors can also buy a bag of bird food* at the information centre (*50p) to feed the birds and ducks.

Snowdrop Walk

Follow a trail of thousands of snowdrops starting to emerge from their winter hibernation on our Snowdrop Walk – the first sign that spring is just around the corner.

With over 60,000 snowdrop bulbs planted in the Gardens over the past six years, Snowdrop Walk will provide a welcome boost to flagging winter spirits.

Then stroll through the gardens and enjoy the early blossoms of camellia and quince.

11 February – 18 February: daily.
19 February – 26 March: Wednesday – Sunday only.

*We recommend that you wear suitable footwear such as Wellington boots as the ground may be boggy in places.
