May Half Term at The Bishop’s Palace, Wells

This Half Term, The Bishop’s Palace is getting creepy-crawly!  The theme for the week is ‘Minibeasts’ and both the Family Fun Friday and the Muddy Monday will involve activities based on all those little creatures hiding beneath your feet!

Pond dipping The Bishop's Palace Wells

On Monday 30th May, it’s Minibeast Muddy Monday – Amanda in the Community Garden is going on a Minibeast hunt and she needs your help to find out which minibeasts might be hiding underfoot, or even in the depths of our pond with some pond-dipping!

On Friday 3rd June, Family Fun Friday will be taking place in the Stable Yard Room.  Join our crafty team to make spinning spiders, dangly dragonflies and beautiful bugs. There will also be garden games and dressing up to keep little ones entertained. Pop in to the Shop upon arrival to collect your time slot ticket for this event.

All week there will be a brand new Creepy Crawly family trail around the site so get the kids to follow the clues and discover all sorts of minibeasts hiding around the gardens.

The Bishop’s Table café will have a delicious children’s menu and plenty of grown up treats for the adults too, so make a day of it and enjoy all that the Palace & Gardens have to offer this Half Term.

Both events are 11am-3pm and are included in standard admission. For more information visit
