Family Event – Tunbridge Wells – Groombridge Place & Enchanted Forest

Join us for a Family Event for all ages to Groombridge Place and explore the Enchanted Forest, Monday 15th August 2022

Groombridge Place is an outdoor adventure forest and formal gardens and is less than 4 miles from Tunbridge Wells.  

You can see the resident animals and birds then try and see some deer in the forest. There are Bird of Prey displays at 12 pm and 3 pm. 

Children will have a day to remember playing in the Enchanted Forest including Crusoe’s World, the Board Walk, Fort area, Teepees and Canal Walk.  

There is a canal boat which will take you directly to the Enchanted Forest (additional charges apply).

Please note that there is very little undercover shelter and appropriate footwear is recommended.   For further details please visit their website
