Learning through discovery, fun and adventure!
Learning through discovery is just one of the reasons to book your group visit to Willows Activity Farm.
With so many children growing up in urban areas, a visit to Willows allows children to explore the countryside, its animals, how animals and humans work together, where the food they eat comes from and the importance of outdoor activity.
