Things to do at Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Wildlife Park review
Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Bird of Prey & Mammal Centre in North Yorkshire is set in 100 acres of woodland and gardens. They have an excellent bird of prey centre and also a smaller wildlife park.
The bird of prey centre has a great number of cages with a large variety of birds. Our favourite by far was the Ravens. Turns out they have a very friendly fellow who kept saying hello to us in a very deep voice (hours of fun!). They also have birds of prey displays. Next to here, you will find a small wildlife park with more birds, meerkats, wallabies, goats and sheep.
The Arboretum is a maze of pathways, no two walks around the grounds will be the same. We chose to randomly wander around. They have a handy map with all the different points of interest. we managed to find most of them. Points of interest include islands, the Bothy, monuments and oak trees. There is also an adventure playground with an intriguing climbing frame and a mini assault course.
Please note – Most places may still require you to pre-book online in advance. Some venues also still have certain areas closed for safety reasons. Please check their website and/or social media pages before visiting.
