Little Explorer's Club at Matlock Farm Park


Every Wednesday we will be discovering and helping wildlife right on our doorstep, from building bug hotels and making a toad habitat, to making feeders for birds and planting flowers for bees.

Don't forget to bring appropriate clothing as we will be getting mucky outdoors in all weathers. Activities will last 30-60 minutes leaving you to then enjoy the rest of the farm park.

Guide Prices

The club is free to join but please ring us before to book a session.



  • Children welcome
