  • Play Spots

    Here at Rushmere we’re big believers in the power of Natural Play and our woodland is perfect for this so we’ve developed a number of “play spots” around the site which you can discover as part of your visit. They are not part of a set trail but dotted around for you to find as you explore the site. Read more

  • Sculpture Trail

    Ideal for families all year round is our very popular Sculpture Trail, an access for all path accessed from the car park outside the Visitor Centre. Find the fairy doors, play on our wooden sculptures and – a real must – have a photo taken in the Giant’s Chair! Read more
