Family Bat Walk

8.30pm (meet at 8.15pm)

£11 adult, £8 for 10-16 year olds. Advance booking essential

Join us on a dusk walk through the gardens to hear and see these nocturnal creatures. Bat detector supplied! Followed by tea and cake. Dress for the weather and for walking over uneven ground.

Location:  Located outside in the gardens. Meet by the river, south of the historic house, use the large green gates to the house from the car park.

Who would like this: Anyone over 10 years old with an interest in bats. Requires lots of patience and good observation skills, so not suitable for the easily bored. Bat sightings cannot be guaranteed as they are a wild species and not on the payroll. All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

What to bring : Please bring a torch (although we ask that this is kept switched off unless told otherwise by a member of staff). Please wear sensible shoes as we will be walking through long grass/ uneven ground that could be wet. Warm weather brings out many insects, wearing insect repellent will limit bites

Covid safe info :  Please remember to follow all current government advice regarding hands, face, space. Bat detectors will be used – one to each bubble. These measures will help keep everyone safe and healthy. Refreshments will take place on the café outside decking area. Do not attend if you or anyone in your household/bubble group are showing symptoms of Covid-19, or if you have been contacted to self-isolate by NHS track & trace

Accessibility & Facilities: The walk itself is over long grass and uneven ground and can last from 60-90 minutes with refreshments at the end (this may be changed if government advice changes). Although we will try our best we cannot guarantee that visitors will see/hear bats. If you have any dietary requirements let us know in advance so we can cater for you. Guests will only have access to toilets at the END of the bat walk. Please follow this link for information on mobility access https://www.hallplace.org.uk/accessibility/
