Learning through discovery, fun and adventure!

Learning through discovery is just one of the reasons to book your group visit to Willows Activity Farm.
With so many children growing up in urban areas, a visit to Willows allows children to explore the countryside, its animals, how animals and humans work together, where the food they eat comes from and the importance of outdoor activity. At Willows the children learn all this and more through our programme of activities, adventure play and having fun!

Your trip to Willows Activity Farm includes an exciting mix of shows, events, demonstrations and fun. Enjoyed by children from pre-school upwards it’s ideal for Early Learning and Key Stages 1 and is supported by curriculum linked activities and teachers resources if required.
