Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary
St Johns Road
Isle of Wight
Telephone: 01983 852693
The Isle Of Wight Donkey Sanctuary has been a home for rescued donkeys since the 80s and they welcome families to explore the sanctuary and visit the current residents, who are always happy to see you! It’s free to visit and get an insight into animal rescue, with donations warmly welcomed once you’ve seen their good works.
Unusually they also welcome friendly family hounds to come along on your visit provided that they are well behaved throughout as apparently the donkeys like them! Walkies!
There are plenty of special events and activities to attend seasonally, including a Dog Show, numerous Christmas events, and a variety of Open Days with stalls and led games to enjoy.
A terrific way to pop the cherry on the top of your day out!
If the kids were moved by the plight of the donkeys, why not have a look while you’re there at the Donkey Adoption scheme? Along the usual lines of your funds supporting a particular animal, kids receive a Certificate Of Adoption, colour photograph of their donkey, plus summer and winter newsletters. A worthwhile way to support the cause.

It may be worth checking out Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
2016 Opening Details:
10:30am till 4:30pm, weather permitting. February until late October, daily.
Prices & Admission
Free access but they survive on donations so take your pocket money please!
