Little Saplings Sensory Play
NEW for 2017, our Little Saplings Sensory Play and Story Telling is designed to help our youngest visitors enjoy the Arboretum.
During the winter months, the sessions for pre-school children will be held in our new Remembrance Centre and in the warmer weather the activities will be based in the Arboretum grounds.
With the exception of our first session on Friday 13 January, each session will run on the first Friday of the month at 10.30 am. The cost is £1.50 per child, adults free.

Passchendaele 100 Guided Walks
Also known as the 3rd Battle of Ypres, the Battle of Passchendaele was known for the treacherous muddy conditions which took its toll on morale and lengthened the time it took for the Allies to recapture the village of Passchendaele. British casualties were estimated at around 270,000.
In this centenary year, join one of our expert guides on a tour of our site to hear about some of the memorials linked to the Battle of Passchendaele.
