Families

Wild Capital provides both public and tailor-made family activities in London. Our programmes are created and delivered by a zoologist and experienced environmental teacher.  Activities are designed to be fun and educational for children and grown-ups alike, sparking ideas to keep families exploring and discovering nature.

Tailor-made Family Adventures

A combination of a nature walk, hands-on discovery activities (such as bug hunting or river dipping), spotting challenges and games create the perfect mix of learning, exercise and enjoyment.

Your family adventure can be completely tailored to suit you. We can explore your local patch, or take you to one of our favourite wildlife spots in the city. There are no age limits, all family members and friends are welcome up to a maximum of 8 people. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult throughout. Contact us to enquire.

Throughout the year we run seasonally themed sessions of our wildlife club; bringing together families and friends to explore local wildlife, play games and create natural art. Club sessions are designed for children aged 5 – 11 and their accompanying grown-ups. We are currently running a club in Trent Country Park, Enfield. Check the Upcoming Events page for the details of the next session. Booking is required. Contact us if you are interested in organising a club in your area.
