The Bridge House Education Centre


Discover Primary Science and Maths logo

Once the old police barracks on the estate, at the time of the Castle being built, The Bridge House is now a specially dedicated space for learning….

It has been lovingly restored and furnished to inspire children’s interest in nature and to develop an appreciation for the natural world. The House is the base for the Education Team who work throughout the entire park and its variety of habitats, teaching all ages about the story of the landscape and its wildlife.  Families are also welcome to visit the centre at special weekends/events and a series of nature based talks and teacher training courses are also scheduled throughout the year.

We cover general ecology, biology, conservation and sustainability, extending across many areas in the SESE and STEM curriculums. We can also tailor special activity days to suit your groups needs.

The Bridge House is an accredited Discover Primary Science and Maths centre and we do our utmost to include all aspects of STEM in each field trip visit.
