The British Wildlife Centre in the heart of the East Surrey countryside is a great day out for all ages and a real natural history lesson.
British Wildlife Centre
It’s home to the finest collection of native species in the country, where you will see and learn about Britain’s own wonderful wildlife, with over forty different species on display, from tiny harvest mice to magnificent red deer and everything in between!
All species are housed in large enclosures, landscaped to reflect their natural habitats. Here you will have the opportunity to see rarely seen species such as otters, Scottish wildcats and pine martens, as well as foxes, badgers and beautiful free-flying British owls. The Centre boasts the UK’s first Walk-through Red Squirrel Enclosure which allows visitors to walk amongst a colony of red squirrels in their own wooded Copse.
The popular Keeper Talks take place every half an hour, giving you the chance to see the animals up close and learn more about the challenges they face in the wild. The Centre provides fabulous opportunities for wildlife photography.
The Centre is located on the A22 near Lingfield, 10 minutes south of the M25, junction 6.
