Attraction Information

The British Wildlife Centre was established to educate people about the beauty and wonder of Britain's own native wildlife in the hope that they will be inspired to protect it for future generations to enjoy.

There are over 40 native species at the centre and the animals are housed in large enclosures landscaped to reflect natural habitats. You will have the opportunity to see up-close rarely seen species such as otters, Scottish wildcats and pine martens, as well as foxes, deer, badgers and beautiful free-flying British owls. The Centre has the UK’s first Walk-through Red Squirrel Enclosure allowing you to walk amongst free-ranging red squirrels in their own wooded Copse. Half hourly keeper talks give you the chance to learn more about these animals, while seeing them even closer. The Centre offers so much to see and provides excellent opportunities for wildlife photography.

Open during the high season, Pip's Corner is a wildlife-themed activity area for children aged 3-6. The Centre also provides a coffee shop, wildlife gift shop, picnic areas and free parking, and is wheelchair accessible.

It's a REAL natural history experience!
