The Gruffalo

The West Lawn


Free with admission to The Garden.


The Gruffalo tells the story of a mouse who meets a predatory Fox, Owl and Snake on his journey through the deep dark wood. In order to avoid becoming their tea, he describes a mythical monster named The Gruffalo to scare them away.

As the mouse continues his journey into the woods, he soon discovers that the creature he’s invented does actually exist and finds himself having to convince The Gruffalo that he is the scariest animal in the woods.

Come and meet The Gruffalo at intervals throughout the day. 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
