FAMILY TAKE IT OUTSIDE


From floating aqua parks to Peppa Pig-inspired experiences, there’s a host of new adventures to discover across England


Go wild in Cheshire England’s second BeWILDerwood is set to open on a 70-acre site in the grounds of Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire, on 23 May. The £5m forest attraction is based on the original theme park in Norfolk, itself the brainchild of Tom Blofeld, author of A Boggle at BeWILDerwood, and features sustainable wooden play structures, aerial ropewalks, climbing walls, balancing logs and muddled mazes for all the family to run, whiz, clamber or wobble on. Plus, there are loads of activities too: from face-painting to arts and craſts and storytelling. bewilderwood.co.uk


Make a splash on the Isle of Wight The Isle of Wight’s first outdoor floating aqua park is set to open at Tapnell Farm this May, measuring a sizeable 50 metres by 80 metres. The park has an inflatable course with more than 20 obstacles joined together to create a series of fun challenges designed to suit varying standards of ability. A section of the lake will also be kept obstacle-free for some more classic aquatic pursuits, such as kayaking, paddleboarding and free swimming. tapnellfarm.com

Discover birdlife in Gloucestershire As part of a project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, 12 new visitor attractions are opening in stages at Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust on the Severn Estuary, including The Estuary Tower Hide, a fully accessible hide, which opened at the end of 2019. A new open-air Living Wetland Theatre and Waterscapes Aviary will open from Easter 2020, followed by the fully wheelchair-accessible Severn Estuary Walkway and Mission Impossible; the latter looks at the survival success story of the world’s rarest goose. wwt.org.uk


Climb trees in Yorkshire Set within the grand surrounds of Castle Howard near York, Skelf Island is a new treetop adventure, just across the Great Lake in the castle grounds. There’s no age restriction on the activity, just the need to be brave. Steely youngsters can expect ingenious treetop nest structures connected by rope bridges, slides, nets and climbing equipment that guarantee a thrilling adventure through the canopy. castlehoward.co.uk
