Inspire little nature lovers

Knee high to a grasshopper? No problem! At Pensthorpe there are plenty of activities designed just for kids and others that your brood will run wild for, whatever their age.

Fun for the whole flock

When it comes to kid-friendly fun, we’re the bee’s knees. With awesome play areas – come rain or shine – a wildlife sculpture trail and our Wetland Discovery Area, the only thing they’ll have to worry about is where the adventure begins.


Welcome to where wild things play! Little nature lovers can blow off steam on our impressive outdoor eco-friendly play area. Scale towers, swing from zip lines, zoom down slides and traverse underground tunnels, and then cool off in the WildRootz stream.

Hootz House

Twit twooo! Indoor adventure play doesn’t get more awesome than this. With rope bridges, snaking slides and tree-top towers to explore, your little chicks can have a blast and challenge themselves while learning all about the wildlife at Pensthorpe.

Sculpture Trail

Pick up a park guide to tick off all the amazing artworks on our sculpture trail together. With many sculptures to spot, they’re a wonderful way to engage young minds, and explore the gardens and nature reserve as a family.

Birthday Parties

Your little one will be happy as a lark celebrating their next birthday at Pensthorpe. We provide the fun, food and invitations – all you have to do is show up and have a great time. Find out about our incredible facilities and the party packages we offer.

Wetland Discovery Area

Marvel at majestic cranes, take part in child-friendly pond-dipping, and find our flock of resident flamingos in their tropical lagoon. Our Wetland Discovery Area is a great introduction to watery habitats, inspiring young minds to help protect them.
