An Animal Park For The Whole Family 

From little ones to Grandparents, experience cherished family moments and immerse yourselves in the beauty of nature at New Forest Wildlife Park.

Discover the magic of conservation, indulge in family fun, and leave feeling relaxed and happy.

Whether you're a local resident or visiting the area, if you’re looking for things to do in Hampshire you’ve come to the right place. 

From amazing animal encounters to educational talks and special events, there's always something happening at the New Forest Wildlife Park that will spark your curiosity and create unforgettable memories.

We recommend allowing 2-3 hours to visit due to being a smaller attraction. However the length of visit may increase for families with children due to our popular Go Wild! adventure playgrounds and of course our keeper talks and feeding times for all ages.

Please note that only registered assistance dogs are permitted into the wildlife park and for the welfare of our wolves, lynx and free-roaming wallabies, they are not allowed to walk through Wallaby Wood.
