The snow has melted and the sun is peeping out again - it’s spring! After hibernating from the cold, we can’t wait to get out and explore the best family-friendly spring days out in the UK. Here are six of our favourites that the whole family will love.
There are 25 species of owl waiting to say hello at the Secret Owl Garden in the grounds of Picton Castle in Pembrokeshire. The resident birds live along the peaceful Blue Bell Walk in quiet woodland and take it in turns to fly around throughout the day. Visitors can learn all about the different species of owl and even book individual sessions to meet, greet and fly them! From the large barn owl to the tiny baby Indian Scops, there are plenty of birds to spark an interest in nature and wildlife in all who meet them.
Private flying sessions include meeting three species of owl, 90 minutes of flying time, photos of you and the owls in action and complimentary refreshments, as well as entrance to Picton Castle. If your brood really bond with one of the birds, sponsorship arrangements are available to keep the feathery family magic alive. Combined with discovering the castle and its grounds, the Secret Owl Garden is a magical day out and the perfect way to enjoy springtime.
