Living Life Our Way

Van Hage- it really is more than just a garden centre!

We went to Van Hage in Great Amwell today, not for the first time, but I really think it deserves a mention as a great (and FREE) family trip out. In addition to things you might typically expect to find in a garden centre there is a lovely animal garden. They have a range of animals and offer opportunities to interact with some of the animals at weekends and during school holidays (see Van Hage website for further details).

Van Hage garden centre is definitely worth a visit! Lovely cheap day out with the kids; with free entry, good facilities and nice attractions, it is one of the great family friendly places to visit in Herts.
