Pensthorpe is a destination for discovery in Fakenham, North Norfolk

Our staggering 700-acre site includes five fabulous gardens and a species-rich nature reserve. Take a trail through wetlands and hedgerows, woodland and riverbanks, and duck into a bird hide along the way to get up close with feathered friends.

We are a family-friendly nature reserve with awesome activities for little nature lovers. From our impressive outdoor eco-friendly play area, WildRootz, to rope bridges and snaking slides inside Hootz House, there’s time for play whatever the weather. You don’t even need a park ticket to wet your beak at our café or stop in our shop for wildlife books, toys, bird feeders, and local produce.

Ts and Cs are as follows:

  1. Blue Light Card holders receive 20% off normal admission price for up to four people per card
  2. You must bring either the card or have the app open to claim the discount. The card holder must be present.

We are part of the national Gardeners World 2 for 1 campaign which, with a valid card, allows one free entry with one full paying entry (lowest priced ticket will be the free entry).  When booking online please purchase one full price ticket and use the Pre-paid Admissions Voucher for the free ticket, then just bring your 2 for 1 card on the day of your visit, along with your booking confirmation.

Please note the card does not apply to events (walks and talks etc.) but it can be used during our half-term on days we have a family trail.

Pensthorpe allows free entrance to one essential carer, who provides proof of carer status, when accompanying a full paying person who is physically or mentally impaired. Check out our definition of a carer on our FAQ page.
