The National Trust team can provide curriculum-linked activities for children of all ages including topics such as ‘living things and their habitats.’

School groups pay £7.20 per child for a full day consisting of three fascinating workshops, such as pond dipping, minibeast hunting, a tour of Fen Cottage or a chance to ‘Connect with the WILD’. An additional entry fee of £3.80 per child is waived for schools that hold Educational Group Membership. There are no charges for accompanying adults.
