We are back again for 3 wonderful plant fairs here at Carsington Water which must be one of the most scenic views from any of our fairs!

The fair is in front of the Carsington Water Visitor Centre - follow the brown signs from the main roads

Boasting a Country Park with plenty of space for family games and picnics, and also the recently refurbished visitor centre and a brand new children's play area, Carsington is a great place for a family day out. There is also a sailing club and trout fishery for those looking for an activity to get involved with. Dogs and barbeques are welcome in the Country Park.

There are 8 miles of paved walks from short strolls to long serious walks.

The reservoir was always conceived as a natural looking haven for wildlife and exciting space for water-based activities co-existing in harmony.

The restaurant serves a wide range of lunches and refreshments and has windows and a terrace that give panoramic views of the water and park.
