Pirates & Princesses Trail

Get out and about this Feb Half Term and hunt for princesses and pirates at Thorndon South Country Park. Pick up a trail guide from the Forest Café and follow the directions, looking for the clues that are hidden around the paths. Once you have found all the clues head back to the café to get your prize and maybe a warming hot chocolate.

Ideal for children aged 3 to 8 years but fun for all the family.

It could be muddy so wear boots (but dress-up welcome!).
