Pond Dipping

A chance for your children to connect with nature and experience Holkham lake’s complex aquatic ecosystem first-hand, giving them the skills and knowledge that books and screens cannot.

Holkham_-_2017_open_skies_(160_of_202)

Our learning team will be on hand with all the equipment, tips and techniques your young explorers will need to enjoy their pond dipping experience. Holkham lake is alive and it’s magical; your child will be amazed at what they can spot wriggling around once they’ve emptied their nets into their tray. Join us on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer holidays to discover what lurks beneath!
