Multiple WINNER of Norfolk's Best Large Attraction (EDP Norfolk Tourism Awards), Pensthorpe Natural Park is perfect as a full day out for families, bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and garden lovers. Located along the river Wensum, in the heart of North Norfolk, you can explore 700 acres of woodland walks and lakes; four stunning gardens, including the Millennium Garden designed by renowned plantsman Piet Oudolf; WildRootz - a huge outdoor adventure playground and; Hootz House, an award winning indoor play area, which is great for kids of all ages, including big kids that are young at heart! There’s also a soft play area especially for the really little ones.

Hop on the Pensthorpe Explorer* and take a behind the scenes tour to discover the secret side of the Wensum Valley, enjoy delicious home cooked food in the Courtyard café and shop until you drop in one of North Norfolk’s largest shops.

    Notes

    Although not all of our reserve is accessible via wheel chair given the nature of the attraction, special care has been taken to provide pathways and routes with a firm surface and wheel chair friendly access, these are highlighted on our Park Guide. Every attention has been paid to accessability for all abilities and ages and our wardens and staff are happy to reserve wheel chairs and assist wherever possible
