Giant outdoor story for Home Educating Families

Why are there giant footprints, a huge bath and even a stone chair carved into the cliffs of Blaise Castle Estate?

Join us on an adventure and discover the story of how Bristol’s landscape was changed by two giants in this active outdoor learning session.

Children will:

  • Follow in the footsteps of giants as they walk through Blaise Castle Estate.
  • Hear the story of giants Ghyston and Goram, whose quest for love left their mark on Bristol.
  • Take part in nature activities linked to the story, as you travel through the woods.
