Why you’ll love visiting us

Our seasonal visitor attraction showcases wildflowers in a natural environment with ideas that can be copied at home. The Centre has a stylish mix of refurbished old buildings and new architecture, with courtyards and a walled garden, where seasonal displays of over 400 wildflower species bloom.

Fun things for children include a giant beehive, a ringing bluebell sculpture, climbing wall, eco snakes-and-ladders, and a low-level tree house to explore. Our community programme is full of creative activities and events encouraging you to connect with nature.

Our display areas are open from April to the end of September, seven days a week, but the cafe and shop and conference rooms stay open on weekdays all year round.

Our mission

We aim to make nature accessible and relevant for all our visitors. We provide information and raise awareness about the importance of wildflowers, and encourage people to learn about the creation and management of new wildflower habitats - we call this creative conservation.
