Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to become a witch or wizard?  Then put on your cloak, grab a broomstick, wave your magic wand and transport yourself to Borde Hill Garden to find out.

Can you help our little Witch, Petronella, who made a mistake practicing her spells and turned her owl into stone?  Follow the spellbinding trail to find the magic word that will bring her owl back to life.
