Wildwood Trust Herne Bay
Are you looking for a special day out in Kent? Don't miss the opportunity to spend an exhilarating day in the British wilderness! Wildwood is a unique woodland discovery park. It occupies 40 acres of ancient woodland, with easy access and lots to do and explore.
From owls to otters, bees to beavers, and wild boar to wolves, experience close encounters with native wildlife in an environment that is close to nature. The life of Wildwood constantly changes with the seasons; as our animals give birth a whole host of young animals can be spotted, so every visit is a new experience. More than 300 animals from over 50 species!
Travel back to Saxon times to meet the local residents and find out how humans and nature got along. Catch a live demonstration of their ancient crafts and skills from the UK's leading re-enactment society, Regia Anglorum at http://www.regia.org/
Discover animals that you never knew once ran free right here, as well as other rare and threatened native species from the present. Behind the scenes Wildwood takes part in conservation programmes of many native species, such as the water vole, the hazel dormouse, the harvest mouse and the European beaver. So you can help save some of the most threatened native animals by supporting Wildwood with your visit.
Only in Wildwood will you find a whole world of British wildlife past and present to explore.
