All aboard the Pensthorpe Explorer

The Pensthorpe Explorer is planning to return on the 2nd April- keep an eye on social media for the most up-to-date news about its return!


What is the Pensthorpe Explorer?

The Pensthorpe Explorer is our off-road adventurer that takes you around the reserve to visit some of the more remote areas of the Estate which are not accessible on foot. On board, you will learn about different conservation projects and farming practices at the reserve, discover the history of the Pensthorpe Estate and have the opportunity to spot the wildlife that calls Pensthorpe home.

It’s not just for adults, either. It’s ideal for when little legs are tired, providing an engaging and inspiring insight into the world of nature and conservation for every generation. We have a special children’s spotter sheet to keep them occupied while on board.

You don’t require a day admission to enjoy this adventure – that’s right! Anyone can enjoy our Pensthorpe Explorer tour – please see separate fee below.
