Come learn about the native wildlife, get stuck in the crazy maze, and marvel at the magnificent Anglo-Saxon village, all set in the 220 acres of parkland at Wildwood Escot.
Dive right in as you get to meet the rare red squirrels in the new walk-through enclosure (one of the only places you can in the UK)! Continue your adventure as you discover the cheeky otter family and see wild boar who previously would have roamed free across the estate. Birds of prey and owls feature in the amazing daily falconry displays and are not to be missed!
Once you’ve seen all the animals make sure you start to work your way around the fantasy woodland complete with hidden playgrounds and a knee-trembling forest drop slide! There’s even a giant pirate ship to climb aboard and a huge Beech Hedge Maze to work your way around! If it’s a little chilly fear not, the indoor play barn will provide hours of fun for the tots!
- Loads of animals to meet
- UK’s only walk through Red Squirrel enclosure
- Indoor & outdoor play, even a huge maze!
