Creating a miniature growing Castle garden couldn’t be more fun.

You will be working with the Bright Woods Forest School CIC’s team and will receive all the magical growing ingredients you need to create your very own miniature Castle which you can take home with you, then stand back and watch your garden grow.

Miniature Growing Gardens sessions will run on Friday 12th April at 10:30am and 1pm, Tuesday 16th April at 10:30am and 1pm and Tuesday 23rd April at 10:30am

Whilst here why not take on the Easter ‘Where is my baby?’ Trail in the Castle’s Walled Gardens. Find the baby animal pictures and answer a question about each one to claim your prize.

You could also include breakfast, lunch or tea, or even just one of our delicious hot chocolates in your visit by popping into our warm and cosy Stables Cafe.  Don’t forget to have a browse in the Gift Shop or enjoy the Woodland Play Area.  These areas are all free of charge for visitors and open daily from 10am.
