Location: Located outside in the gardens. Pick up your trail sheet from the Stables Gallery and Gift Shop by the Visitors Centre

Who would like this: Family groups with children aged 4-10 years. The younger the child, the more family teamwork required. Advise one trail sheet per child as small chocolate prize is not easily shared. Families with under 4’s welcome at their own discretion.

What to bring: Please dress for the weather and wear appropriate shoes for walking the site over uneven ground and grass areas. You will also need a pencil or pen, but you can buy one for 50p if required.

How does it work: The aim of the trail is to guess the type of dinosaur. There are 8 trail posters in the grounds at Hall Place each with a different picture of part of the dinosaur and some clues relating to it.  Use these clues to guess the dinosaur. The trail sheet asks questions related to the posters. Find the trail posters to complete your trail sheet.  Most of our families enjoy the fun of finding the posters by themselves, but there is a map in the shop if you want to see where they are (take a picture on your phone for reference if you like). You will need a pencil to answer the questions on the trail sheet, bring your own or buy one for 50p. Our trails are designed for all the family to participate, but you only need buy the trail sheet for each child taking part. The prize is usually a small chocolate bar, but please ask before purchasing the trail if there are any alternatives.

Our trails are made for family groups with a wide range of abilities, so you will need to work together. This trail has information for the dinosaur fan as well as images for those not well versed in dinosaur types. Please ask to look at the trail before purchasing to make sure it is suitable for your family.

Booked online: Please bring your ticket email QR code to the Stables Gallery and Shop to pick up your trail sheet. You can buy on the day as well.

Accessibility & Facilities: All trail sheets are bagged up with the prize so that you do not need to return to the shop. There may be a queue for the trails at peak times. Please remember to socially distance especially inside. If you are able, ask one person to queue so that the rest of the group don’t get bored.  This event is held on uneven parkland. There is the café and toilets nearby including disabled toilet and baby change. Please follow this link for information on mobility access https://www.hallplace.org.uk/accessibility/
