Attraction Information

Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Wildlife Park is a mix of meerkats, falcons and the finest private collections of trees and shrubs in the country!

Situated in the Yorkshire Dales, step into a natural wonderland of tree trails, nature trails, lakes and idyllic picnic spots. Children will love the adventure play area, while parents can take in all the colour of the seasons in this ancient woodland. There are daily flying displays at the Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre. Meet the owl and falcon hatchlings in the spring, visit Meerkat Island and take a walk through wallaby wood!

The tearoom is set in its own little garden and is a delicious place to visit all on its own. Enjoy homemade food, kids’ menu and highchairs in a peaceful location, surrounded by colour! There are regular family event days with special children and seasonal trails. Go for a wander in a sea of bluebells or kick up the brown and golden leaves of autumn.

Lots to see and do for a great family day out!
