At New Forest Wildlife Park, we believe wildlife is for everyone. We are working hard to make sure our park is as enjoyable as possible for all visitors. Please find some information below which may help you plan you visit.

Sensory Map
We have created a sensory map of the park so our visitors are aware of areas where loud noises and smells may be found. We've also highlighted the dark area for our nocturnal animals and the areas where animals roam freely. A sensory map of the park can be downloaded here. 

Social Script
It might be helpful for some visitors to know what to expect from their trip. Click here to download our social script prior to your visit. 

Disabled access

We welcome wheelchair and mobility scooter users and visitors with limited mobility. However, the woodland trails and natural forest environment may pose difficulties for some visitors. Please telephone the park prior to your visit to discuss your requirements, and we’ll do our best to help.


Free entry for carers
We offer discounted rates to visitors with disabilities and their carers (one carer per visiting adult or child with disabilities or special educational needs). Proof of disability can include a Blue Badge, Access Card or similar, DWP letter (i.e PIP, DLA), statement of special educational needs from a LEA, or a letter from a medical professional on NHS headed paper stating carer required.
