Come rain or shine, we’ll help you keep the children entertained all summer long. Our new museum is full of games and activities to transport you back in time to see what life was like for families in the past. Outside in the park, there are bugs to hunt, trails to follow and acres of space to play. And we’ve got a packed programme of special events and activities from craft workshops to museum and park tours too.
