Enjoy an exhilarating family day out at Norfolk's Best Large Attraction*! In its 27th year, Pensthorpe Natural Park, the former home to BBC Springwatch (2008-2010), continues to captivate its visitors with its unique surroundings and thousands of bird, plant and wildlife species who call it home. For adventurous families, join ‘Hootz’ the owl and journey your way around his magical, natural world enjoying a day of adventure play…nature’s way! Swoop like a falcon, scramble like a spider and dig like a mole as you discover underground burrows, giant winding slide towers, shallow streams to splash through and assault courses in the trees as you adventure your way around WildRootz. There really is something for everyone at this multi-award winning attraction. Discover four stunning nature-inspired gardens and see spectacular wildlife in one of Norfolk’s largest wildflower meadows. Absorb the structural beauty of Piet Oudolf’s Millennium Garden which looks spectacular at its peak in late summer, admire the sculptures as you meander through the Wave Garden and visit our Wildlife Habitat Garden with bees, bats and butterflies, this garden is literally a “buzz”! Even if you have not got the time to explore the wonders of the Park, simply take advantage of ample free parking and free entry to the Shop and Cafe and enjoy delicious locally sourced home-cooked food in our Courtyard Cafe and take a stroll around our Gift Shop brimming full of unique gifts. Pensthorpe Natural Park is open daily** and is situated on the A1067, one mile from Fakenham. *EDP Tourism Awards 2014 & 2015 **Except 24th - 27th December.
