Uncover Dippy’s Dinosaur Trail this Easter!

This Easter Half Term the kids have an opportunity to take a fascinating journey through time and explore over 10 acres of beautiful gardens.

Uncover Dippy’s Dinosaur Trail this Easter

Back by popular demand, we’re running another captivating Children’s Garden Challenge Dinosaur Trail from Friday 30th March to Sunday 15th April.

Providing a fun experience for all our little visitors, Dippy the Dinosaur has been stomping through the undergrowth carelessly leaving dino facts, dino jokes and dino clues throughout our gardens. He’s wondered over from the nearby Jurassic Coast and will be helping adventurous explorers to learn more about the World Heritage Site, which is filled with rocks and fossils detailing Earth’s ancient past.

Can you uncover Dippy’s trail and find everything that he’s left behind? A small prize will be awarded at the end to the most talented explorers.

Normal entry price applies to the gardens, but the trail is free of charge for all participants.
