A visit to Erdigg offers a fantastic day out with kids in North Wales. Families can learn all about the 250-year story of a gentry family’s relationship with its servants. Watch the look on the children’s faces as they learn about the grim reality of servant life, from emptying chamber pots to 14 hour days. They may also enjoy a trip to the nursery to see how much toys have changed over time.
The fully restored 18th-century garden is also a great place to explore. Visit the donkeys, watch the ducks on the lake or head into the Wolf’s Den, a natural play area which spans nearly two acres of wild play space. The Wolf’s den provides children with den building, rope swings, balancing beams and a host of other natural play equipment built entirely from resources found on the 1,200-acre estate.
There is a tea room and restaurant on site serving a range of meals and light bites. Picnics are also permitted.
Now that you are refuelled, don’t forget the rest of the 1,200-acre landscape pleasure park, a haven of peace and natural beauty, and an alternative spot for riverside picnics. Discover the ‘cup and saucer’ cylindrical cascade or explore the earthworks of a Norman motte-and-bailey castle.
For a great day out with kids in Wrexham, Erdigg could be a number one choice. Erddig is a place where old memories are found and new memories are made.
