A historic garden in Welshpool is opening its gates for curious and creative youngsters this February half term.
The popular National Trust activity trail, ‘50 things to do before you’re 11¾’, is returning to Powis Castle from February 19 to 27. Guaranteed fun for all the family, the trail is free and open for everyone.
Exciting activities on the trail include getting to know a tree, making friends with a bug, welly wandering and wintry adventures.
Sarah Johnson, visitor operations and experience manager at Powis Castle and Garden, said: “The whole team is excited to see ‘50 things’ back at Powis Castle for some half term fun. It’s always a well-liked activity and the sheet encourages youngsters to let loose in nature and learn something new as they go.
“We are delighted to offer this trail for free, so we hope it will appeal to lots of families who need to entertain the children for a couple of hours.”
The ‘50 things’ trail was created by the National Trust to encourage children to get outside and enjoy everything nature has to offer. The activity sheet can be used all year round, at various National Trust places, and many of the activities can be done in a garden at home.
No pre-booking is required, as trail activity sheets can be collected from the welcome cabin in the car park. The trail is free to take part in and standard admission prices apply.
Powis Castle and Garden is open from 10am to 4pm (last entry 3.30pm). The courtyard café is open for drinks, cakes, light bites and sandwiches. For further information, visit: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/powis-castle-and-garden
