Groups and Schools
With children growing up in this age of technology, a visit to Hatton allows young minds to explore the countryside whilst having fun.
Here at Hatton, we run a variety of different programmes to suit all different types of groups from nurseries to school visits with different options including meet and greets, fun guides and educational groups. Our educational visits are geared towards particular topics that may be covered at school.
“It’s lovely to know you don’t have to pay extra once inside the park. So much easier when bringing younger children. Excellent value for money – roll on next year!” Mrs L Griffin, Kings Sutton Girls Brigade
Scales and Tails
Our purpose built educational area was brand new in 2015. Heated and undercover, our interactive zone helps children learn all about farming, nature and animals. From snakes to stick insects and tortoises to tarantulas, children can get hands on with all our exotic creatures.
The Scales and Tails area has a dedicated animal handling area, reptile and invertebrate displays and a classroom area where we hold the Exotic Encounters experience for groups.
Exotic Encounters can be added onto any Farm Fun Group Visit (additional charge applies).
Outdoor Laser Combat is an authentic action game. All the latest sophisticated digital technology is used and players will kit up in camouflage gear, carrying guns that shoot precision beams of light at their opponent’s sensors. Ammunition is limited, as are the number of lives each player has, so it’s essential to outwit the other team members through stealth, speed and nerve.
Laser Combat games take place during weekends and school holidays, for groups visiting at these times they can partake in a Laser Combat game at an additional cost of £3 per player. Please note that Laser Combat is for children aged 8-13yrs and players must be over 1.2m tall.
