Learn something new

Learn something new, or practise an existing skill with one of our classes in our Weir View Room, overlooking the gardens, the river Trent and the meadows beyond. 

Join one of our knowledgeable volunteer walk leaders as they take you on a stroll through the present and the past of the local area, see some of the hidden history and wildlife on a bite-sized wander around the confluence of the river and canal.
