Adventures Through Time

Adventures Through Time

Get your imaginations at the ready as you prepare to discover Kelburn through the ages! The Boyle family have lived at Kelburn for over 800 years, a small piece of time in Earth years! Let’s explore key periods of time including the Jurassic era, Medieval age, Flight pioneers and one of our Kelburn  favourites, Wild West.  Participate in fun activities as you journey through time and create your own adventures along the way.

The Country Centre opens 10am – 6pm daily from 11th July.  The secret forest, adventure course, and saloon play areas are great to explore as well as many glen trails.  Come along and have a super summer day out.

Enjoy all or some of the following journeys through time, estimated duration of each ranges from 20 min – 30 minutes. Don’t forget to make your own adventures too!
