Included with entry to the Gardens

Get ready to wiggle into your wellies and head off on an adorable adventure of discovery through Kew Gardens. 

'Swishy swashy' through grass, 'squelch squerch' through mud and 'splash splosh' through rivers as you set off on an expedition in search of bears.

This sensory adventure will wind across the Lake and into the Arboretum – home to some of Kew's most magnificent trees and visiting wildlife. 

Based on the award-winning animation We're Going on a Bear Hunt and bestselling picture book, written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, this is an adventure for all of the family to enjoy as you explore different landscapes and make muddy memories in Kew Gardens this autumn.
