General Events Information
Most events are free of charge! For all walks please bring suitable clothing and stout boots. The weather can change quickly here at any time of the year, so it’s always advisable to bring waterproofs. You may also need sun cream and insect repellent as well.
It is a good idea to bring a drink for any walk, and for the longer hillwalks you will need to bring lunch. Freshly made packed lunches can be ordered in advance from our cafe on (01597) 810899.
Car parking charges apply to all events starting from the Visitor Centre.
We reserve the right to change/cancel events.
