The Gruffalo at Kew GardensGrab your map and paint on some whiskers this Easter ready for a Gruffalo hunt at Kew Gardens. Immersing little ones in the world of Julia Donaldson's much-loved characters, The Gruffalo at Kew Gardens plots a journey through the beautiful Arboretum - home to 14,000 trees - throughout which visitors will encounter Fox, Owl and Snake, joining in on interactive activities along the way and learning all about the different habitats as well as the marks that humans leave on woodland ecosystems. The most adventurous of visitors might even get the chance to meet the Gruffalo himself and there's a pop-up eatery serving a special Gruffalo-themed feast.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
