Join a member of the Exbury team at this fun and educational workshop specially designed for socially distanced family groups. Turn a collection of pre-cut wooden pieces into a cosy nesting place to take home and hang in your garden. We’ll lend you the tools you need and give you some tips along the way as you put the bird box together. We’ll also provide some useful information on the birds you might attract.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
