New Forest Wildlife Park
New Forest, England
It’s the wonderful summer holidays and the great British weather is doing its usual round of wet & cold. We did however manage to book a day to visit the New Forest Wildlife Park on a beautiful sunny day which I think made the visit all the more perfect. We went we some friends which the girls were very excited about.
The New Forest Wildlife Park is based near Ashurst in the New Forest. Postcode is SO40 4UH. It’s literally a 10 minute drive from where we are.
It is open daily from 10-5:30 and there are lots of different animals here including a huge variety of otters, lots of deer which can roam all around you along the path and it they come you are allowed to stroke them, a larger variety of owls, bison and lots more! They have lots of really informative talks around each feeding time for the animals, which the children loved to watch and listen too, and there are a couple of parks, on is a sand park with lots do to near the entrance/ exit and the other is a large fun play park in the middle with lots of tables and benches for you to have lunch on.
They have a cafe where you can get hot/cold food & drink and ice creams if you wanted. We grabbed an ice cream at the end on our way out as we had all brought lunch with us.
