Get out in Nature with these family events & things to do this winter

If there is one thing we love about Winter, it is getting out and about in nature. In fact we all love to be outdoors throughout the year, but Winter is just so special. Look for those spider webs glistering with dew. The crunch of fresh snow as you head out on a walk.

I have put together a list of nature friendly events running throughout Winter.

If you have an event you would like us to advertise, free of charge, please fill in this form HERE

This post has been updated for 2024 but please do let me know if I have missed something you think should be included in this post.

I will update this list as the months go by and more events are announced. Keep an eye out for our other seasonal guides.
