Set in natural woodland, New Forest Wildlife Park specializes in providing a safe home for native and past-native British wildlife. The park is recognized as the UK’s leading institution for the rescue and rehabilitation of unwell, injured, and orphaned otters. It also rehabilitates other wildlife, such as owls, deer, and foxes, in similar situations. Alongside the British wildlife, the park hosts a few international guests, including wallabies. Join the keepers for their regular informative talks throughout the day and watch them feed the animals. Look out for the free-roaming, inquisitive deer, one of which has been known to examine visitors' pockets for treats. The adventure playground is the ideal place to let little ones run loose, including a zip line, climbing ropes, swings, and more. There is also a special play area for children under six. Relax in the Woodlands Bakehouse coffee shop for lunch, or treat yourself to home-baked cakes and New Forest ice cream. Our Ashurst trip itinerary planner makes visiting New Forest Wildlife Park and other Ashurst attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • There wasn't much in the way of animals to see. A few but maybe the price reflects this as it wasn't expensive to get in. The recreation/playground was really good. So much fun. Adults and children can play on it as it's so well made plus there are signs encouraging adults to play! It is definitely worth a visit.
  • I want here by myself and had an amazing time. This would be perfect for a family day out. You can get really close to all the animals and even stroke the deers. The map the give you is easy to navigate with and on the back shows all the feeding and talk times. The only reason I have this a 4 and not a 5 star is that the parking can be difficult at times to find a space. BUT they do have people guiding you in now witch is good. And the food cort line was very long.
  • Visited 1 April 3 adults 1 senior me and 1 child, cost over £50. for that we saw 3 wolves 1 lynx 2 boars a few owls and wallabies, Took about 30mins to get round, however this was just as well because when we decided to have a snack we spent most of the day waiting to be served! Absolute rubbish. John Bonar Fareham
  • Well laid out - lots of animals. Loved the Butterfly House, the otters and the owls Friendly staff.
  • Great place to visit, lovely range of wildlife with great enclosures! Animal staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit.
