Batsford for children

Children’s trail

Visiting Batsford with little ones? Our children’s trail is a fun way to explore the Arboretum, keeping little ones interested and entertained! Plus, on completion of each trail, every child gets a prize! Ask about our children’s trail at our admissions desk.

Children’s play area

Let the children burn off some energy in our new play area, adjacent to our café terrace, while you enjoy a cuppa or a bite to eat. Be sure to visit the parrots in our aviary while you’re there! The play area is free of charge to use and is suitable for children under the age of 8.

Children’s events

We run a number of family friendly events throughout the year, from our Easter chicken hunt to open-air theatre productions in the summer! See our events page for our forthcoming events.

Please note: Children’s bikes and scooters, footballs or bat and balls are not permitted within the Arboretum
