UPDATED 2 July 2020

We are now open and from Saturday 4 July we will also be able to open some of the children’s adventure play areas including the Giant Tree Swings, Crusoe’s World and the Board Walk.  The gardens and the maze will remain closed for a little longer.  The tree top walkway will also remain closed. The canal boat will also not run due to social distancing restrictions.  Visitors can also enjoy two birds of prey displays daily.  Picnics are allowed in the picnic fields and there is a kiosk at Crusoe’s World for drinks,  ice creams and snacks.

To ensure we keep visitors and staff safe, we are moving to a pre-booking system only and visitors can book 15 minute arrival time slots from the booking page.
