There’s no better place to meet Britain’s wonderful wildlife than the British Wildlife Centre near Lingfield! The Centre opens its doors every weekend and during school holidays including from Saturday 1 April to Sunday 16 April (for Easter) and Sat 27 May to Sun 4 June (for half term).

The British Wildlife Centre is home to the UK’s finest collection of native wild species. With over forty different species,  from tiny harvest mice, Europe’s smallest rodent, right through to red deer, Britain’s largest land mammal. You’ll see rare Scottish wildcats, red squirrels, badgers, hedgehogs, foxes and more.

The British Wildlife Centre’s animal residents are in spacious enclosures, landscaped to reflect wild habitats, allowing them to display natural behaviour. The popular Keeper Talks, which take place every half an hour, give you the chance to learn more about these animals and the challenges they face in the wild while seeing them even closer.

Children’s Easter Trail – Easter Sunday 9 April 2023: Children can enjoy spotting eggs that are hidden amongst the animals. If children spot them all they’ll win a small chocolate treat and the chance to win Annual Family Membership for the British Wildlife Centre. An eggscellent day out!

A REAL natural history experience!
