The park's 88 acres give plenty of room for your party to run free and let off some steam, and with its big mix of features and attractions, it makes a whole day out and excellent value for money. It's no wonder nearly 16,000 school pupils come through our gates each year to enjoy the park.

Robin Hill is a huge outdoor space packed with fun activities which will spark any child's imagination.

There are many learning opportunities available here, and the Education Destination teaching resources make the most of the visit by linking certain aspects with the curriculum back at school.

This is a hands-on, physical kind of venue and so most of the provided resources are used off-site. However, there are a number of great on-site resources too, with a fun orienteering/geocaching inspired activity taking students all over the park collecting information to complete a task, or inspiring them to act out various drama scenes.

Other areas with strong learning potential include the Woodland Treehouse, Combley Roman Villa and its interpretation room and several great biology related activities.

It's a full-on hectic day out which the kids will love. They'll probably learn a great deal too.
