Welcome to this exciting and evolving venue for outdoor learning, at the gateway to the National’s Trust Erddig estate in Wrexham, North East Wales.
Felin Puleston Outdoor Centre sits on the edge of the National Trust’s Erddig estate. It benefits from being close to Wrexham town, so it’s easy to access for locals and public transport links whilst also sitting at the gateway to 1,200 acres of landscaped parkland and gardens which is home to abundant wildlife and enjoyed by visitors year round.
At Woodland Classroom we’re excited to be working in partnership with the National Trust to offer this special venue to you. Felin Puleston Outdoor Centre is perfect for environmental education, school visits, training courses and outdoor birthday parties.

The Training Room can easily accommodate a group of up to 15 and there’s covered space available outdoors adjacent to the building, very useful for craft work during wet weather.

Not forgetting the estate parkland itself and with the meandering River Clywedog on our doorstep too it’s a great venue to learn about freshwater ecology.
Parking is FREE at Felin Puleston and parents who drop their kids off for our events can access the estate’s parkland footpath network or even continue onto Erddig Hall & Gardens itself.

Seperate charges apply for accessing the formal gardens and manor house.
Felin Puleston is also home to Erddig Grow, a wellbeing initiative helping nature to nurture local communities in Wrexham. The project is a hub of positive action where community groups have planted an orchard, clubs get together and local groups contribute to the development and maintenance of the garden and wider estate.
