The resident animals and birds include peacocks, chickens, Shetland pony, Mexican Donkey and our famous Zedonk (half zebra, half donkey). Also look out for deer in the forest and if you are lucky you may see a kingfisher when on the boat trip.
The UK’s Longest and Highest Tree-top Walkway opens at Groombridge Place in Kent
Discover the amazing new handcrafted Treetops Walkway, which is an incredible 350m long and stands at over 20m above the forest floor.
Thrill seekers can experience something truly magical as you climb higher and higher along the ropes into the tree canopy of the huge Oak, Pine, Beech and Chestnut trees which make up this ancient forest.
There are sturdy wooden platforms at the beginning and end of the Treetops Walkway and a big chunky 4-sided rope ladder provides an additional entry and exit point along the away. The adventure will take at least 30 minutes to complete.
- Children under 10 MUST be supervised AT ALL TIMES
- The walkway is a ONE WAY system
- The walk is for all ages (recommended for over 10's)
- Sensible footwear MUST be worn (e.g. no heels, sandals or flip-flops)
The 360 degree views are well worth the exhilarating climb. The experience is safe for everyone but we suggest children under 10 are accompanied by an adult at all times.

These displays, which feature eagles, hawks, owls and falcons, take place at 12.00pm and 2.00 pm - with each display featuring a different feathered line-up.
Please be aware: due to a family bereavement, our Birds of Prey are temporarily suspended until further notice. This is likely to take effect between 17th - 24th September.
