FOR FAMILY…

ALL WEEK

If you’re looking for family fun to fill the diaries throughout the school holidays, and you want to make the most of the great outdoors at the same time, gather the gang and head into the woods at Wynyard Hall. Their enchanting Woodland Walk provides a magical playground in the grounds, where children and adults alike can explore the very best of what North East nature has to offer. Pack up a picnic, enjoy the big open spaces and check out some small creatures and carvings along the way.
