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).

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. We’ve also got a fantastic amount of great things to see here – have a look at our list of weird and wonderful things that will appeal to our younger visitors. Finally, there’s the Wild Bunch, a special club for 5-16 year olds who want to keep coming back because they have such a great time here.
