Explore the Minibeast Mansion

Get a bug's-eye-view of the world!

Play video

Kids get a bug’s-eye view of the world with our new Minibeast Mansion play tower, which gives them the chance to crawl into their own giant ‘bug hotel’.

There, under-10s can clamber, creep, and slide through the hexagonal wooden structure and explore its intricate compartments.

It’s designed to help children enjoy ‘wild play’, as well as introduce little ones to the subject of pollination.

Situated next to the tower is a real insect hotel – a new wooden structure with a series of habitats for visiting pollinators and other beneficial minibeasts. 

A number of wheelchair accessible features are included in the new play area, including a raised sandpit. 

Did you know?

Children today spend, on average, just 9% of their time outside; a lot less than previous generations. We’ve created inspirational spaces for kids here at Eden because we know that outdoor play can improve cognitive skills, health, imagination and self-esteem; all essential ingredients for a happy and successful young person.

We offer training for teachers and ideas for parents to help kids reconnect with their environment.
