Exciting happenings are planned at Groombridge Place, Tunbridge Wells, this half term.  Children will have the opportunity to design their own exciting Halloween mask, witches or wizard hats there will be trick or treat games shows, entertaining puppet shows, and even the chance to try out nurf guns in the arena.  It is good to know that there will be activities both indoors and outdoors.  A bird of prey display will run twice a day and for brave souls there will even be a chance to hold a magnificent 12 foot snake and a hairy tarantula spider!  There is always plenty to do at Groombridge Place.  Try Crusoe’s World with its authentic wooden ship, or take a walk through the enchanted forest and try its huge tree swings and zip wire.  As always the forest is full of challenges and magical secrets. 

For visitors seeking a more peaceful experience do take a walk around Groombridge’s tranquil gardens which overlook the picturesque 17th century moated manor house.  Relaxing trips will be available on the canal boat and the new ‘Peacock Bistro’ is worth a visit, offering tasty lunches and scrumptious cream teas.
