Erddig National Trust
Last weekend was a free weekend, no birthdays, no parties, no appointments. These weekends seem to be rare at the moment. So even though the rain was pouring we decided to go on a little family day out. Erdigg National Trust (one of our favourites) had a Fantastical winter toybox trail exhibition on. Erddig National Trust often have events and exhibitions on. I remember last year when they had an Alice in Wonderland Trail. There is always so much detail and work that goes into these events and they are well worth a visit.
However when we arrived at Erddig National Trust the rain had turned to snow and was falling quite heavy. We still managed to have a little look around but couldn’t stay as long as we would of liked as it was so cold and wet.
What we did see though was amazing, there where huge old toys scattered around the gardens. A huge ballerina jewellery box, a huge colourful chess set, Noah’s Arc with the animal two by two. It was great running around to see what we could find.
So whilst we didn’t have time to find all of the toys scattered throughout the gardens. What we did see is beautiful. Erddig National Trust always have such amazing exhibitions and this one did not disappoint. And, although we are in January, with the beautiful gardens dusted with white snow gave such a Christmas and magical feel – it is so beautiful to see.
Erddig National Trust is a beautiful place to visit all year around. The gardens and flowers are stunning throughout the Spring and Summer months. It has a really magical garden feel with lots of different sections to explore. There is also a woodland park area suitable for children all ages to play in. If you are lucky a tea/coffee van will be open so you can grab a cuppa whilst your children plan.
