Free Dino Fun for Families

This summer, Hereford City Life is going Jurassic with fantastic dinosaur-themed activities for families to enjoy for free.

Throughout the holidays, enjoy free dinosaur-themed activities that are perfect for families.


The Hereford Dino Trail

Explore Hereford while hunting for dinosaur facts with this fantastic interactive trail.

The Dino trail will feature 10 locations, spread across the city; each with a poster featuring an educational dinosaur question. Participants can stomp along the trail and discover the answers by scanning the QR code on each poster. Explorers who complete the trail, visiting all locations and scanning the QR codes can collect a fun prize from Hereford Tourist Information Centre and will be entered into a prize draw to win £50 worth of Hereford Gift Cards.

Participants are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled for anagram letters along the way too. Those who find all the letters and can unscramble them, solving the anagram can submit their answers for an additional chance to win.

Trail runs from 29 July - 4 September 2022. To take part in the trail, simply download the LoyalFree app and head to the trails section.


Dino Days

Discover your inner archaeologist and dig for dinosaurs!

This is a FREE activity with no booking required – just turn up and see if there is a space available!
