This is a lovely place to visit for a close encounter with some British wildlife including owls, badgers, red squirrels, foxes, red deer, hedgehogs and weasels just to name a few. All of the animals live in settings that reflect their natural environment. Much of the area is outdoors, although there are plenty of undercover areas such as The Barn, The Hedgerow, the Nocturnal House and our observation Badger Sett. There is plenty to see at any time of the year and most animals will be out and about whatever the weather. The keepers give talks every half an hour to give you a further opportunity to learn about the animals.

If it doesn’t rain, then head out to the Surrey Hills and enjoy one of the National Trusts natural play trails, a great way to burn off all their energy and its FREE!
The natural play trail at Box Hill is a 2 mile level, circular walk. It’s a great chance to have fun in the woods: to explore, discover and balance on the log poles. The trail takes anything from an hour to a whole day. Make your own adventures on Abinger Roughs near Dorking, discover the natural play area where you can balance on logs or climb trees. Holmwood Common’s new level pathway takes you on an adventure around the whole site. Its dry pathway means that in even the wettest weather it’s an ideal spot for scooting or bike riding.
