Fun Things to do in Herefordshire as a family

When it comes to the summer holidays keeping the kids entertained constantly can be difficult.

With the weather constantly causing disruptions, and with some huge events, such as the recent Big Jam Sandwich event in Southend causing uproar, it can be difficult to decide what to do.

But, one place that’s great for the little ones, is Hertfordshire. With lots of fun things to do and with easy access thanks to public transport from Brighton, Horsham and Hitchin to Stevenage trains, this is the perfect place to spend a day or two during the long six weeks.

Below, you’ll find five of the most exciting things to do here with your little ones.

Ralph Court Gardens

If they love exploring the great outdoors, this is a place filled with 12 stunning and magical gardens for you all to adventure through.

Alongside the walks, you’ll find water jets, a pirate and Alice in Wonderland garden and the garden’s resident dragon Edwina for you to all meet.

Newbridge Farm Park

All kids love animals, which makes this the perfect place to spend a few hours. 

Filled with all your farmyard favourites, you’ll find horse, goat, sheep, pigs, alpacas and even bunny rabbits here. With a mixture of show and tell sessions to teach kids about the farm and animals, alongside areas where they can interact with the animals, it’s a day of fun for all.

Croft Castle and Parkland

Filled with history and adventure, this a place filled with 1,500 acres of parkland, farm and woodland, which embodies 1,000 years of history.

A National Trust Castle, which also sports a church, orchards and vineyards, and even a mini-castle play area, everyone is sure to have a fantastic time here.

Oaker Wood Leisure

If your kids love a little adventure, this is the ideal place. With 175 acres of woodland, you’ll discover a range of activities here including high ropes, paintballing, an assault course, target shooting and biking.

Hereford Museum and Art Gallery

If your little ones loves to learn about things from the past, with the added excitement of real artefacts, then this is the perfect place to take them.

Featuring more than 100,000 objects, you and your kids will be able to jump into the world of fine art, archaeology, costumes and medieval and civil war history for hours and hours.

You’ll also find a range of activities to do, and it’s completely free of charge.

So, if you can’t find something that’s a dead cert for you and the kids, it looks like Hertfordshire is the place to be.
