Eerie Explorers

22 Oct 2020 - 1 Nov 2020

Become an Eerie Explorer this October half term!

NEW for 2020 this event is ideal for families and children of all ages. Discover the grim and gruesome side of nature, from creepy crawlies and sinister sounds you hear outdoors, spending half term at Pensthorpe is a fun way to unravel your curiosity about nature and wildlife, in all of its dark and deadly forms. Join us for a wildlife-themed Halloween trail and scavenger hunt, which will force you to wander our reserve and gardens, looking behind you at all times and being careful not to wake sleeping predators that lurk in our hedgerows, trees and grasslands. A prize awaits you when you complete the trail!

Explore the natural world deeper and find bugs and critters lurking around every corner. 

For serious thrills and spills pay a visit to wicked WildRootz, our award winning outdoor adventure play area packed with dens, tunnels, towers and zip-wires!
