Lambing Weekend – Kingston Maurward

One of the annual events that we really look forward to is the Lambing Weekend at Kingston Maurward Animal Park and Gardens.

We only live a short drive away and as season ticket holders, we get into the event as part of our membership (which is very reasonably priced at only £50 a year for 2 adults and up to 3 children).
