What's of interest

Westonbirt is a Children’s University Learning Destination!

The Children’s University is a charity dedicated to encouraging children 7 to 14 (and 5 to 6 year olds with their families) to try new things, engage in new experiences and learn outside of the school setting. All our seasonal family trails are now validated to earn three hours on a Children’s University passport. To claim your hours please email a photo of your completed family activity leaflet to learning.westonbirt@forestry.gov.uk
