If you’d like to extend your stay at the Sill you can also enjoy a discount on The Sill’s activity trail kits and worksheets, spend the afternoon exploring the beautiful landscapes near the Sill, hidden fairy trails and their brand new outdoor play park.

These sessions are for families and under 6s (or near enough!)

Tickets cost £5 per person (i.e per Child and per Parent/Guardian) - there's no cost for siblings under 1.
