Animal Encounters

A complimentary tour…

Up close with some of our animals

This complimentary tour introduces you some of the UK’s amazing species we have the privilege of having at our centre. These animals are here for several re-introduction and breeding programmes we are involved in. This guided tour will introduce you to our white storks and water voles, and one of Britain’s smallest mammals the harvest mouse. You will learn about the species and their habitats, their roles in their natural ecosystems (both past and present) and the importance of them in helping prevent any future extinctions in the wild. The tour will end with a visit to the wildcat breeding area, where hopefully, you will get a glimpse of these elusive cats and maybe even their kittens. Additionally, meet our new arrivals, the European Lynx. 
This tour runs either on a Thursday afternoon starting at 2pm or Sunday morning starting at 9.30am and lasts approximately 2.5 hours. The tour starts and ends at the communal area where you will be provided with a hot drink and snacks. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour.
The tour involves a gentle walk with frequent stops for talks and to view the animals. Some areas will be muddy so please wear suitable footwear and clothes appropriate for the weather as it will be outdoors most of the time.
