Step onto London’s oldest Nature Trail, explore the wild side of the Horniman Gardens and the animals that live there.

Dip nets in the Horniman’s pond and explore outdoor habitats on their wild Nature Trail. Use scientific equipment to collect animals and first-hand observation to learn more about them. Reconnect with nature and enhance Science curriculum learning.

This workshop will run outdoors on the Horniman’s Nature trail and will go ahead unless in the event of extreme weather. Please ensure your Students are dressed appropriately for the weather.

About Horniman Museum and Gardens.

Matilda The Musical Logo

The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.

Learn about their world-class collections and discover information about world cultures, music, different species and the natural environment we all share.

There is more that unites us than divides us, and this can clearly be seen when looking at the 350,000 or so objects in the Horniman collections.
