Xplore Nature - Logo
In 2023 Xplore! extended our education programme to include an incredible forest school site based at the Wrexham University campus at Northop.

Xplore! Nature is an inclusive and engaging space where Xplore!’s award winning science engagement meets the world of forest school provision.

The space covers 95 acres and is a wonderful mix of deciduous old growth trees, intriguing paths, and amazing adventures.

The site has a rich history having been in constant use for over a thousand years from a world war 2 prisoner of war camp, to a norman castle; and now Xplore! Nature is the next step in the sites’ incredible history.

We have crafted a variety of outdoor learning activities facilitating knowledge-gathering and social development helping visitors of all ages to build a connection with the world around us.

Our current Xplore! Nature sessions include:

  • Stay and Play toddler sessions – book your session today
  • Birthday parties in the woods
  • Forest school sessions available for school trips
  • Community group hire
  • Company Team Building and mindfulness sessions.
