With just a sprinkle of fairy dust and a little imagination, watch as The Galgorm Castle Fairy Trail comes to life before your eyes. Everyone say it together... ‘I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!’
Discover an enchanted route through Galgorm Castle’s woods where every detail has been lovingly handcrafted to complement the local flora and fauna. Amongst the trees spy a fairy village complete with miniature wonders, including an outdoor library. You’ll even be able to pay a visit to the tooth fairy! Little believers can knock on her door, drop off their teeth and await a special surprise in the morning.
After being gifted an activity book, kids can solve problems, spot clues and if they guess the right answers, be in to win a prize! The trail is suitable for all ages, particularly with their ‘Dummy Tree’ which encourages littluns to let go of their habit and hand it over to the fairies in a special drop off box. It's a truly magical day out to spend as a family.
