A big day out with Peter Rabbit™ at Kew Gardens
Family fun and garden adventures this Easter
Friday 30 March – Sunday 15 April 2018
Hop along to Kew Gardens and follow Peter Rabbit’s trail on a botanical bunny adventure this Easter holiday. Explore the wonderful world of vegetables and other edible plants, whilst learning about how they are grown, and children can plant their very own seeds to take home and nurture.
Don’t miss a visit to Mr. McGregor’s potting shed, and then pop into Kew’s incredible Kitchen Garden nearby to learn about the fruit and veg grown by Kew’s very own kitchen gardeners.
You’ll find activity pop-ups for all ages in Kew’s beautiful Secluded Garden, where youngsters can choose which Peter Rabbit character they’d like to be for the day and make some fuzzy bunny ears to match. Enjoy an exciting fun-filled day out with games, crafts and storytelling inspired by Beatrix Potter’s iconic tales.
