Alternatively, if honing a skill is what you prefer, try our archery taster session or navigate Wandlebury’s pathways during an orienteering morning. Garden wildlife enthusiasts can also enjoy expert talks and walks at a Garden Wildlife Day aimed at all the family.

Whatever you choose to do this Easter holiday, enjoy the fresh air and the fun of being outdoors at Wandlebury. Why not stay on for a picnic and explore the park afterwards?
