Our visitor centres organise a regular programme of events and activities for adults and families. The Trust has fourteen Local Groups across the county that organise a programme of walks and talks for local members. Non-members are welcome at these events. Booking is essential for most centre events, so make sure you call or visit the centre in advance to avoid disappointment.
