A fun way to spend time with the under 16's in your life, outdoors! Let's get them out in the fresh air and learning about wildlife! We know children can often develop a love for wildlife, and starting early often gives them a great appreciation for the natural world we live in. We also know the health benefits of being outside and getting children out into the fresh air, so this walk is perfect to do just that.
And why not check out our ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP before booking? By buying a Friends and Family Membership for example for £99 for the year, you get up to half price on up to 5 tickets per booking, two free group walk vouchers to use over the year... plus a host of other benefits!


A version of the very popular Goring Riverside Return which is designed for families - a walk children can enjoy with their parents or other family members. (Children are classed as under 16 - over 16's are classed as adult and able to join any walk that can be found on my page).
This is a 1.5 to 2 mile, relatively easy, flat circuit and at a pace that should be no issue for children of different ages. Most of the route is not all paved - good quality pram / pushchairs could be possible BUT may need lifting over two kissing gates depending on the size, and should be able to be pushed on a non paved path - so I will leave this to your discretion
During this walk we will hope to see and hear an array of Birdlife from Warblers to Raptors, Goldcrest to Kingfishers - and we will help you and your children spot as many as we can along the way. A Bird Spotting list with pictures of those we can hear and see is provided for them to tick off and take home afterwards. Also provided is a packet of Duck food for each child to feed the locals. I'll also let you know where to spot different birds and wildlife when out on quieter walks so you can come back with your children for your own bird spotting adventure.
After working up an appetite, you could pop into one of the fabulous eateries Goring & Streatley have to offer to complete your experience!
Our wonderful friends at The Miller of Mansfield our offering free tea or coffee when buying a brunch or breakfast and at Pierrepoint's Café you can receive 10% off your food bill when you produce your booking confirmation email at point of ordering.
