Education

Our workshops, activity sheets and guidance for teachers are tied closely to the National Curriculum and make education fun for everyone. If you are leading a school group, you can use our information sheets to run self-guided tours.

Children can ponder their own place within the natural world through hands-on interactives in the Discovery Room.

The beautiful wildlife meadow is the perfect environment to explore the local flora and fauna. You can eat your packed lunch here or in the indoor and outdoor picnic areas.
