Dinosaurs will be roaming an activity farm in Hertfordshire this May half-term holiday.

Visitors to Willows Activity Farm can look forward to a prehistoric adventure as the leisure attraction near St Albans welcomes a Triceratops, Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus Rex between May 27 and June 2.

The prehistoric predators will be making regular appearances throughout the day in the outdoor arena as part of the farm park’s Dino Ventures event.

Promising palaeontologists can also dig deep in Willows' Big Dig sand pit to unearth fossils. Every fossil finder gets a certificate to take home with their Jurassic find.

Lyssa Elster, CEO at Willows Activity Farm, said: “We’re heading back in time this half term and have a T-rex-a-rific week of Mesozoic madness lined up.

“The only thing that’s extinct at Willows this half term is boredom. We will be celebrating everything prehistoric in our Jurassic arts and crafts marquee with dinosaur headbands for little ones to decorate and take home.

“And our Dino Hunt trail around the farm will be running everyday of the half-term holiday with a prize for every dino hunter who takes part.”

The interactive Dinosaur Encounters takes place eight times a day where visitors will be able to see the Cretaceous creatures with their handlers and watch live as the giant reptiles have their huge teeth cleaned.

There will also be different baby dinosaurs to meet in special shows about the prehistoric hatchlings.

In addition to a jam-packed programme of Dino Venture fun, there is also all the usual Willows farm fun for visitors to look forward to including the PETER RABBIT™ Adventure Playground, Peter Rabbit shows throughout the day, The Farmyard animals, funfair rides and inflatables, Tristan the Runaway Tractor and the Puddle Play Park.
