Spring at Westonbirt

Activity walksChildren playing in bluebells

I-Spy Spring - look for buds bursting, listen to the hammering of woodpeckers, find an early spring scent and touch furry flower bud cases.

Westonbirt's Wildlife - with the growth of fresh spring leaves it can be tricky to spot the animals that make Westonbirt their home - but if you can't see the animals why not don your detective cap and look for the clues they leave behind.... and see how many you can find. Happy hunting...

Playing through the season

Spring - can you meet our nest challenge, play the sounds of a woodland, find a flower rainbow and create a spring scent?
