Narnia experience (Free Family Walking Experience)
Free Family Walking Experience
This family loop trail takes you through the woodland at Kilbroney Park in Rostrevor. The famous writer, C S Lewis, as a young boy, spent much holiday time in the Mournes and Rostrevor in particular, allowing him to imagine, dream and wonder, and inspiring his creation of the magical world of Narnia. ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ have sold over 100 million copies. Lewis is reported to have written a letter to his brother saying:
“That part of Rostrevor which overlooks Carlingford Lough is my idea of Narnia”
This family trail seeks to capture the imagination of children of all ages.
The walk starts and finishes within Kilbroney Park in Rostrevor and brings to life the Chronicles of Narnia with a number of features along the route. The trail is entered, like the magical world of Narnia itself, through a ‘Wardrobe Door’, beyond which lies a land filled with strange and intriguing creatures. Enter at your peril, as the White Witch has put a curse on the land. It is always winter and never Christmas – and she can turn you into stone. Be warned, don’t eat any “enchanted” Turkish Delight! Other features along the way include ‘The Lamp Post’, ‘The Beaver’s House’ and ‘Aslan’s Table’. These features offer many opportunities to interact and take photos/selfies.
