Almond Valley

It's a wonderful day of adventure and play

The fields, woods and green spaces of the Almond Valley site extend either side of the river Almond for nearly a mile. At its heart lies the historic buildings of Livingston Mill and the associated Mill Farm. This is home to many friendly farm animals who are always keen to introduce themselves to visitors. Elsewhere on site, there are all manner of unique and imaginative play spaces set among the fields and gardens.

There’s loads to see and do in all weathers. We’re particularly proud of our new Paraffin Works play area set beneath a giant umbrella, and there’s also indoor soft play and other under-cover features, including our museum displays and activity spaces.

It’s a brilliant day out, especially for families. Come along and find out for yourself.
