For children to learn and explore it is important for them to have the opportunity to experience sacred spaces first hand. The visit will give them the opportunity to begin to explore spirituality and develop a sense of awe and wonder.

The wonderful space also provides opportunities for work in curriculum areas other than RE. As well as the trails we offer for children we are happy to create a bespoke visit to suit the particular needs of your children.
