A great day out for wildlife lovers


The conservation of wildlife and wildlife habitats is the single, most important focus of the work undertaken at Pensthorpe; this is why we love to see our own natural world flourish. With such a diverse range of habitats, our Norfolk Natural Park is now nationally recognised as a breeding site for many species, as well as becoming a haven for numerous types of bird, insect and mammal. With 200 acres to explore embracing nature trails, bird hides and walk-through aviaries into our natural surroundings, Pensthorpe offers visitors the perfect opportunity to get up close to some of the most endangered and vulnerable species, in addition to our own fine Norfolk wildlife. From Grey-Crowned Cranes to Red Squirrels, our Natural Park makes for a truly unforgettable experience and a wonderful Norfolk day out.
