Educational Visits

All Things Wild is a friendly, safe and all-weather learning environment. Our park has so much to explore, including animals and dinosaurs.

Our educational visits are very popular and gain repeat custom.  Some of our visitors have previously said:

“We have had a lovely day here and would highly recommend a visit”.

“A fabulous day – a brilliant start to our new dinosaur topic!”

A visit to All Things Wild can be tailored to meet your needs; from a self-led visit, to including a range of activities such as animal encounters and education activity sessions. For more details about prices, please contact our team via [email protected].
