Fairy & Trolls return with a Dragon Quest! 

Launches Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th August until 30th October 

The fairies and trolls have been spotted causing mischief in the gardens once again! Can you find what tricks they have been up to this year? 

The leader of the trolls, Ludo, has even made an appearance, taking over a part of our gardens and giving up the whereabouts of his lair. Do you think you have the skills to find out where he’s been hiding? 

As if that wasn’t enough, the fairies & trolls have some mystical visitors coming through on the 6th & 7th August who need your help! 

It’s time to take an amazing journey to the mythical Forest of Fantasy and Fables where you’ll enroll in the legendary Dragon Camp and help these fantastic beasts and their friends complete a magical mission.

Someone is plotting to steal the legendary Golden Dragon Egg and it is up to you to uncover the truth. On your incredible quest, you’ll get to meet with the dragons, solve their puzzles, uncover clues and complete your adventure and become a master of dragons.

Part Mystery, Part Scavenger Hunt, Part Treasure Trail, this interactive event is fun for all the family. Plus there are plenty of opportunities to meet and interact with the fascinating and fantastical dragons along the way.

It’s a legendary day out for all fantasy fans out there so put your dragon skills to the test and come and help us save the day! 

Dragon Quest will be on 6th & 7th August only, between 11am-3pm each day. 

The fairy & troll trail is free to children under 12 and only requires an adult garden ticket at £9.50 each which can be purchased by clicking here
