Children’s Garden


Due to pandemic our events have to be curtailed. We will keep everyone informed of our future plans. Meanwhile, Here are some examples of recent events

Throughout the year children can experience the changing seasons and, through planned activities, learning about life in the gardens. There can be no better experience than getting down on the ground, felling the soil and leaves, digging for worms and harvesting the crops the children have planted.

Come and meet Joe the Scarecrow who looks after our Children’s Garden where parents and carers can be fully involved with their children in a range of fun activities. We always make sure that the bird feeders are always full for our feathered friends who visit our garden.

NEWS – We have just been awarded a grand from Warwick District Council to develop a sensory area in the gardens – watch this space…

Our team of volunteers and staff are here to give the children and families in our local community the best experiences in out beautiful and historic gardens. Here young children are introduced to playing and learning outdoors, including activities such as exploring the Children’s Garden and the other plots and being creative through natural arts and crafts. Families will enjoy digging and planting, water play and for some, most importantly, jumping in muddy puddles is the best fun you can have, so wellies and waterproofs are always required!

Children and families can learn about the stories and history, the flowers and the plants. They can see the implements that have been used here since Victorian times and find a magical Secret Garden to explore.
