Fairy Tale

Orienteering family fun during the summer holidays from 9th July through to the 4th September. Enjoy exploring the ornamental gardens using directions and clues to follow the sculpture trail, this year featuring 10 bespoke pieces, hidden across every corner of the gardens, ready to be discovered by eager young visitors.

Created by artist Rob Faherty, the sculptures draw inspiration from the natural world, for the most part, the British countryside and it’s wildlife!
