We're here to help, but to keep us all safe please only come to the office if necessary. Most of our services are available online but if you do need to see someone, please book an appointment to avoid long wait times.
We’d love to welcome your school to Holt Country Park. Rangers will plan and lead a full or half day programme to fit your needs. We can accommodate groups of up to 90 and any age groups ranging from pre-school to GCSE. Our rangers can also suggest activities for pupil's unaccompanied studies.
The Ranger service includes teaching Environmental Education at Holt Country Park. This aims to promote a healthy and caring interaction between the learning group and the natural environment.
£6.00 per child. Teachers and adults who accompany school trips gain free entry.
