We’re turning 30!

For 30 years Pensthorpe Natural Park has been a source of inspiration and enjoyment for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts alike. We have been celebrating this momentous occasion through a new programme of events which lift the lid on the natural world! From expert-guided walks to tutored bird identification classes and even opportunities to hear the majestic dawn chorus as the sun rises over the reserve, the events are open to all and aim to enhance visitors’ knowledge of the nature and wildlife. They have been running throughout 2018 and have been a resounding success thus far!

Deb Jordan, owner of Pensthorpe, comments: “Having a connection with the outside is one of the greatest pleasures we can have. There is a growing desire to spend more time disconnected from technology and immersed in nature so these events offer the perfect opportunity to re-engage with the natural world, develop knowledge, and see parts of the reserve that aren’t usually open to the public at those times of day. Our new events not only celebrate 30 years of the evolution of this beautiful corner of Norfolk, but they champion some of the wonders of the natural world and we welcome everyone from avid wildlife enthusiasts to nature novices!”

Our anniversary falls on Wednesday 11th July 2018 (today!) and we are celebrating with 30% off admission for all our visitors along with some exciting additional activities. In order to remain accessible to all, we are running the same 30% off offer on Saturday 14th July plus additional good old-fashioned fun activities for the younger visitors such as pond dipping and a nest box talk!
