The activities are run in the school holidays and at half terms and offer a variety of activities.

Remember to bring the passport to learning to collect credits if children are members of the Children’s University.

Do come to the Gardens which are lovely all the year round with plenty to see. Explore parts of the Gardens that are often missed such as the Four Seasons behind the pavilions and the Marnock Garden. Remember to say hello to the Bear in the Bear pit.
