Discovery Days take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the school holidays at The LookOut Discovery Centre in the heart of Hyde Park.
Our expert learning team run a range of free and exciting nature-inspired activities for families. You could be pond dipping, helping your children discover an underwater world, sweep netting in our meadow or bug hunting at our minibeast hotel.
The activities are suitable for the whole family to enjoy, allowing you and your children to connect with nature together (and giving you the chance to find your inner child!).
On Discovery Days our gates are open from 11am to 3pm, so drop in anytime or book online. This map should help you find your way.
Sign up for our FREE Hair-Raising Halloween Discovery Days where you can take part in :

- Creating a potent potion using herbs and plants from the garden in the Witches' Den
