Attraction Information

Fancy an educational day out with the kids? Venture into the scenic nature surroundings of  Thames Chase Visitor Centre, and introduce your little ones to the important role of trees. It’s also the perfect place to teach your kids to ride a bike, as there’s a whole network of flat, surfaced paths.

At the Thames Chase Visitor Centre your little adventurers will have plenty of opportunities to get active with 3 differing separate play areas to explore, including the Discovery Den. Take the A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon Glow Trail* to help Shaun the Sheep and his friends.
