The Enchanted Woodland Weekend

Social 2 - with druid.jpg

There’s magic and mischief hiding in the woodlands at the Heights of Abraham this bank holiday weekend. Meet the woodland fairies on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and learn their secret magic on the summit patio around noon on all three days. Over in the Masson Pavilion meet Panryl the Wizard and his troublesome dragons for story telling on Saturday and Monday. On Sunday you’re invited to a wizarding workshop.

Children who arrive in fancy dress during this special weekend will be awarded a 20% discount on cable car tickets for the entire family (up to a maximum of five family members), so pick out your favourite storybook outfit, or dress up as a super hero, to claim a discount at the base station ticket office when you arrive on the day.

Over in the craft tent younger children can make fairy crowns with Creation Station between 11am and 4pm on all three days.

All our attractions will be open for the weekend including guided tours through two illuminated showcaves, galleries and exhibitions, the fossil shop and adventure play areas.
