Join the Gruffalo’s Child this October half-term and follow our enchanting trail around the Gardens.

Look out for fun surprises as you go on a magical adventure through the deep dark wood.

Along the way you’ll meet familiar beloved characters from author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler’s book, including Fox, Owl, Snake, the Gruffalo, the Gruffalo’s Child and of course, the Big Bad Mouse.

Intrepid explorers of all ages are welcome to join in the fun.

On your wild journey across our beautiful autumn landscape, collect clues in your search for the Gruffalo’s Child and other characters.
