This Easter there is no better reason for families to come together and use all their senses to become Nature Detectives and learn more about some of the UK’s native trees, animals and birds. We have teamed up with the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust that will take them on a journey through Windsor Great Park.
Starting at The Savill Building from 04 – 13 April*, families will follow a trail to learn more about some of the UK’s native trees, animals and birds. Participating children will be rewarded with their own “Organic Chocolate + Surprise Toy” (Dairy, Nut, Gluten & Plastic Free) when they return to The Savill Building.
The trail, great for children of all ages, is also suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and at approximately 2km total (1.2miles) should take about 1 hr. Dogs on leads are also welcome!
On your return stop off at Obelisk Pond to enjoy the rides* of Horton’s Vintage Fair. There is something for all age groups … its sure to put you in a spin!
Once back at The Savill Building, you can finish off your trail at The Savill Garden Kitchen. With a new and exciting Spring Menu, hungry Nature Detectives can rest their feet and enjoy a tasty bite to eat and refreshing drink before heading home.
